Odd Yellowhammer moult

Adrian Blackburn caught this young male Yellowhammer in his garden on 29 September. It appeared to have moulted some of its remiges and whilst this has been noted widely in Greenfinch, Goldfinch and some Linnets, nobody contacted so far has seen it in this species before.If anyone reading this blog has seen anything similar, please let us know.
