How do I change a set of a href url based on a prefix + extracted middle bit from existing link + suffix?

Hi,

I am using a flickr plugin in wordpress which shows icons of my flickr photos in the footer.
There is one problem though. It open the links like this:

http://farm1.staticflickr.com/304/19078206629_4cfbe2d72c_b.jpg

whereas I need it to open

https://www.flickr.com/photos/134303126@N05/19078206629/in/dateposted/

The prefix https://www.flickr.com/photos/134303126@N05/
and the suffix /in/dateposted/
will be the same for all images in the gallery

From the name of the file, for example: 19078206629_4cfbe2d72c_b.jpg I need to extract the first part (19078206629) and insert in the middle of the prefix.

The gallery is in a ul > li > a structure so I need to run an "each" jquery on the set and make sure that on click the link that is opened is prefix + the initial part of jpg name till before the _ + suffix

Please help as I have tried a few things but I can't get it to work right. I would like to achieve this via jQuery please.

thanks
