I know its not a great picture, but this is the only time I've ever seen a Pallid Harrier. This is a juvenile and I took this photo in the KNP close to Tshokwane picnic spot in Feb 2011.

Like MattAxel said about his, not a great photo, but we saw this Harrier at N'wamba Pan in December which was identified by way more experienced birders than us, as a Pallid Harrier.
