Pallid Harrier

Went to the north of the Kiskunsag today with 3 friends from Finland. After a lot of searching we found our main target bird, Great Bustard, 19 of them in total, all big males, one or two beginning to display... a lifer for Antero. Sometimes it happens, birds take time, but we got them. Yet in many ways the bird of the day was a juvenile Pallid Harrier, on the ground, a tricky bird to age and ID, but then it flew, came closer and was easier.
