This harrier was seen yesterday over a pivot field south of Riyadh taking an unhealthy interest in a flock of yellow wagtail.
I don't know whether it is a pallid harrier or Montagu's harrier. My guide says that all dark fingers are a feature of Montagu's juveniles whereas it also says a broad pale collar with a brown neck is a feature of Pallid juveniles. It seems to have both.
Which is it, please?
PS sorry about the picture quality
