This bird has a yellowish cast to the legs, a red eye-ring and a black band on P5. However, I think the bill and head-shape, as well as its pale dorsum are wrong for michahellis. It is also possible it is not quite adult, which might explain the black band on P5. As the bird is quite boat-shaped it may be "omissus".
