Most probably your are right in identifying this plant as P. aviculare. Though, a scrutiny of the nuts would help more. I suppose the number of stamens in your plant is 8. Fl. Pakistan describes this plant with 5 (-4) stamens whereas Fl. China with 8 stamens. Hooker has written nothing about the number of stamens. However, the illustrations available on net goes with P. aviculare. I think a close scrutiny of the complete plant specimen would only confirm the identity.
