Local bird in complete moult: P7/P10. P1-P7 new 2nd gen fully grown, P8 growing, length at P4, P9 missing, P10 old juvenile. PMS=37. Moult in secs: S1-S3 new 2nd gen, S4-S8 growing, then secs missing, no old juvenile. Rectrices: R1 seems to be a juvenile tail-feather (which is very unusual, normally moult in recs starts at this point and prgresses centrifugal, maybe R1 is old 2nd gen?), other have been shed, now growing 2nd gen.

Probably some coverts were included in post-juvenile moult on wintering grounds, now again replaced for 3rd gen, like GC2.
