Montagu's or Pallid Harrier

Hi

I saw a harrier in Netherland (Zeeland) (19.09.2015)
(at this time there were more pallid harrier recognized as montagu's in the netherlands)

It was a female harrier with narrow wings.

if it was an adult female, the pointed wings strongly suggest Monty, if not aged anything is possible
