The gray trailing edge of the slat is composite and could have been delaminated by a bird strike. But they will likely fill the dent at the first overnight opportunity and defer a permanent repair until the next C-Check where they will either remove the slat and replace the trailing edge wedge or do a permanent repair with a bondo-like composite resin filler. Good as new. The panel over the pylon is pretty thick metal and likely no harm done there.

Looks like one bird fared much better than the other one in this encounter ;)

Interesting photo. The bird remains match the JAL logo too.
