This is a kite, not a harrier. Monty's is grey in the adult male, brown with a white rump in other plumages. It is a very slender bird with a much longer tail than this. Hen H is similar. Marsh H has no plumage that resembles this one. The only debate that might be had is whether it is Red or Black. I am not sure why I was less than certain in my ID (I think the mouse slipped), but the underwing pattern and squarish tail leave us nothing but Black Kite.
