yellowing leaves: is this a nutrient defficiency?

My lemon tree's leaves are yellowed. It looks to me like a nutritent defficiency, but I'm inexperienced and not sure which one. Does anyone know?

It's a Meyer lemon in a large pot. It's autumn here now and the tree is fruiting much more heavily than it has done before (yay!). I'm very pleased about the fruit, but wondering whether I need to feed it more with something.

I fertilize my citrus with generous amounts of Yates Dynamic Lifter in Spring and Autumn, plus the odd handful of worm compost and very occasional applications of water-soluble fertilizers like Thrive (not sure if these brands are the same in other countries - I'm in Melbourne, Australia).

Can anyone offer advice as to what my tree needs?
