P01893 has a rounded head, shortish legs, a shortish bill and may be an Atlantic bird.

P01894 and 5 show an unusually pale bird, not really the right colour-tone at all for michahellis. At first, in the field, I thought it was omissus, but the sub-terminal trapezoidal mirror on P10 together with a thick black band on P5 point strongly to michahellis.
