Harrier - Poland (1 Viewer)

Hello

Today I saw just the back of this Harrier, that past along a green field, before disappering in behind some trees..

I see at as having 5 "fingers", but as an odd place for a Hen Harrier, since I usually see it close to places with marsh/reeds.. Here is just farm land.. Seconly, someone reported in a Montagus Harrier in the same area yesterday, but they are sort of rare around here..

Can anyone tell me if the last small "finger" is counted, so it's a 5 or 4 "fingers" Harrier or maybe out from colours or jizz tell if it's a Hen or Montagus Harrier?

Yes AGDK, the small finger makes five, the wings look nice and broad and OK for a Hen Harrier for me.
