a few recentish birds

nice male Marsh Harrier in fresh plumage after the post-breeding moult, my only Pied Fly of the year!, Great White at Barton a couple of weeks back, some of the 8000 Goldies in the Read's Island flock and Pec at the terribly non-aesthitic or scenic Covenham Res

Marsh Harrier XR

juvenile female, one of a brood of 3 fems ringed Norfolk - Suffolk border June 2017 -- been in residence at Alkborough and area most of the autumn and still around this week -- easily aged but how confident would you be sexing it as a female?
