I see strong barring on the greater coverts which suggests AMWI.   EUWI coverts would have dark centers with weak bars.  On my computer screen the head looks quite gray.

As example:



I don't see why this cannot be a hybrid. On my screen, the head coloration looks intermediate, with the area in front of the eye looking particularly brown, while behind the eye looks grayer. Additionally, the innermost secondary does not look truly white to me. Throw in the lack of a black basal ring on the bill, and I see a reasonably good case for a hybrid.
