The sky has had the original feint blue tint reinstated - this is not evident (faded to invisibility) on most original prints but is clearly shown in the original
watercolour. It might not be visible on your monitor. Additionally, the lower right patch of deep shadow behind the bird's tail has had the grass detail
reinstated whereas this is seriously compromised in most surviving original prints due to clumsy, thick over-washes of heavily pigmented colour
