I took the following photos of a Bateleur flying hi in the air at Orpen. It was not easy to take the photos as the light changes the whole time as the Bateleur is flying.

Hi, Could you ID this bird of prey, which I saw outside Punda Maria camp.
Image
As you can see it was eating a young nyala but I didn't actually see the kill.

Thanks bondm UK

Thanks for your quick replies. I had the idea that it might be a young bateleur but wasn't certain.
Thanks again. bondm UK

A few years ago we came across a young bateleur pecking at a very fresh impala carcass. We concluded it was roadkill as there was nothing else around.
