All what you say makes sense though, I'd thought about the worn plumage and thought about an imm. (2nd cal yr) female RP with bleached plumage. I have been watching fledglings and adult (not quite of flying size) KPs running around today and thought about this ID request. I'm undecided and for such a photo I'm finding this really tricky

No more photos?
I haven'y got much of a different angle on this I'm afraid Simon.
