Local from Switzerland: ringed as pullus on May 25 2004 at Fanel, Switzerland.

Aged by combination of features: 3rd gen primaries with mirror on P10, adult-like head including bill but often with more black; this combined with immature patterns on coverts (especially greater primary coverts) and often lower tertials or tail.
