Nearly arrested moult in Dutch ad LBBG

Note moult in the right wing: P8 > P7, P9 still present. The moult gap is only slightly larger in the left wing. Picture taken 09-10-09 in IJmuiden with Mars.

It remains problematic how to interpret such a very small moult gap. Moreover since P9 has been dropped in the other wing. Will moult really be arrested soon, or will it continue at very low pace to finish this sequence (for whatever reason...)?
