Hi Naomi

I think the first one is probably a African Hawk-Eagle, Busy moulting from Juvenile to Adult plumage.

Thanks BB, I was not convinced it was an African hawk eagle. We do get them in the area but thought they are more black than brown and quite heavily spotted on the chest. Then again I am smaller than a duckling when it comes to birds :wink:
Here is a shot of it from the front

Aha - no streaking.....

Blond Wahlberg's then? Are they still around.

Doesn't look like a juvenile martial. :hmz:

BB I have seen a brown Wahlbergs and there are Martials in the area. It was a fair size!

Johan, barryels actually suggested Booted Eagle (when I posted it under birds in the garden thread) Would my area be correct for them?
