Dark Morph Marsh Harrier

Male. It was a very good autumn for dark morphs. I am still non the wiser regarding female plumage's. 

Immature male, 24th September. Tail still very brown from above. In most birds the grey is very limited in the upperside of the remiges. Same bird in lower two photos.

The newer P6-7 are already worn

Adult male. Some yellowish marks on the lesser coverts and face/neck.

6th September

Male, 28th September. Same bird in following photos.

Tail still brownish pointing to an immature bird.
