Observation details

identified in the field by jizz, coppery colours of underbody and behaviour as Montagu's Harrier despite photos showing indistinguishable, inconspicuous or even absent all-dark fingers and dark trailing edge to the hand. Also some white-shining contrasts but rather dark secondaries, entirely barred primaries (in Montagu's more common in females) but somehow regular and not that broad primary barring, together with scaly rather than uniform upperwing pattern. Although wing-posture and age, wingtip formula suggesting p10 falling closer to p6 than between p5-p6.
