immature. Seen four times. Flying fast low over fields seemingly erratic at times showing white rump. On last sighting it flew up high and sparred with red kites before flying over into Oxon. Viewed at distance through scope showed pale upper wing coverts on a plain wing and very dark underwing secondaries so presume its a juvenile/immature bird. SU528813.
