I am fairly sure this is Hen Harrier (male). Just want confirmation!

Right species, but a female I

Right species, but a female I think. Adult males are largely grey with black wingtips, this looks too bulky for a young male. Super pictures.

A "ringtail", so a female or immature.

I wouldn't like to say for certain that it's a female rather than an adult male, but I think I agree with Syrphus (it's definitely not an adult or near adult male).

Dark base colour to the breast streaking suggests a juvenile, either male or female.

Nice pics - most of ours seem to have 'disappeared'.



The magic of nature is all around us - we just need to learn how to see it.

My previous comment should have said than I couldn't be certain that it wasn't an juvenile male!
