Ringtail Harrier, Netherlands (February 27 2021, Noord-Holland, Waterland, Near Amsterdam) (1 Viewer)

This afternoon I saw this Harrier (Waterland, Ransdorp, near the North of Amsterdam and IJsselmeer). A juvenile I think. Unfortunately it was extremely far off and I only managed these blurry images.

Hen Harrier would be by far the most likely. Although not possible to really count, I seem to see 5 fingers in one of my photos. However, the fingers appear strikingly dark (slightly reminiscent of a juvenile Montagu's). The single trailing dark tail band puzzels me.

Could someone help me ID? Is it a Hen Harrier indeed?

Regards, Frank
