the adult looking bird could be a 4cy or 5cy although p10 mirror (what's left of it) looks large. bill: strong dark mark, base with pinkish-pale-ebony plus yellow and orange at tip: such a bill looks pretty multicoloured. legs pinkish ("fleshy"). faint basic head striation.
advanced in terms of scaps, tertials and coverts - all look renewed.
