Pallid Harrier breeding in the Netherlands

Family holiday in the Netherlands again, Three weeks on the waddenisle Schiermonnikoog means lots of time on the beach with Robin and her cousins, but also a day or two birding with my brother and my good friend Lazar Brinkhuizen.
As it happens a pair of Pallid Harriers is breeding in the Netherlands for the first time ever. It is kept secret, but I was so happy to get information about the exact spot and saw today adult male and female and three crisp juveniles. Difficult circumstances for photography, though. Anyhow, here are some results...

the male, very worn

female, always difficult to identify

and one of the juveniles
