Montagu’s Harrier

Often difficult to tell apart from the Hen Harrier, the Montagu’s Harrier is a slimmer and more delicate bird, sometimes associated with arable fields. It has a distinctive black bar on the inner wing obvious on the Male, however the narrow long tipped wings are the best clue to it’s identity.

    What an amazing bird! The top half looks very owl-like to me.
