I saw this interesting raptor near Rooiputs in the Kgalagadi in November 2012. First I thought it was a junvenile Southern Pale Goshawk but then the colour and stipes confused me. A friend of mine from our local bird club told me he thinks it is a juvenile SPG. Any comments? Sorry for the quality but the raptor was far up against the dunes and I had to crop (heavily) the image.

I'm thinking hard to see if I can make it into anything else, but Pale Chanting Goshawk (juvenile) is my first guess.
