Nice one, definitely AHE in the Apple-Leaf woodland (Lonchocarpus capassa). A good indicator of size with those leaves being about 8cm long. The African Hawk-Eagle is streaked as opposed to the Ayre's which has heavily streaked underparts and leggings.

Batmad has got them.

AHE's are often seen in pairs.
