Hen Vs Montagu´s Harrier in central Spain (1 Viewer)


just a birder
Hello everyone

This afternoon I observed this female harrier in Guadalajara, Central Spain, in an area bordering an urban area and an area of dry crops

Mainly due to the short fifth primary (4 fingers) I think she is a female Montagu's harrier. I'm right?

Are there any other features in these images that can help me with identification?

Thanks in advance
