Unusual rainbow lorikeet

Hi all,
There was a flock of Rainbow Lorikeets on my lawn a couple of days ago. One of them, while having all the usual colours on the front, had a bright yellow back and wings instead of green. I double checked that it was definitely a Rainbow lorikeet. Is this a mutation? Or a common variant? I’ve never seen one like that before.
