This bird is now in 6cy. Most of these codes originate from the Dintelhaven project in 1997. In this bird, the primary tips are relatively fresh and the mirror on p10 is broad, reaching both edges of the primary, but doesn't merge with the white tip. The inner greater and median coverts are the oldest feathers in the wing, brown hued and slightly abraded.
