Öland - Sweden - Harrier/Buzzard

Hello,

Saw this raptor today. Similar size to buzzard or marsh harrier. Didn't appear to fly or glide like a harrier. Long straigt wings with very clear darker 'fingers' than rest of wing. Relatively long and straight edged tail

Thanks

Looks like a male Marsh Harrier in straight, gliding flight...
