Common/Spotted

Just to check, because it is not a species I know, really, is this definitely not a Spotted? I just thought that the tail projection was a bit short, and I can't see any notching on the tertials. However, I am colour-blind and couldn't begin to comment on leg or upperpart colour!

Leg colour
