Seen between Satara and Olifants, many eagles present they seemed to be catching insects me thinks.

Was also Tawny and Steppe Eagles and many yet to be identified small raptors.

I don't think it's an eagle because it doesn't appear to have fully feathered legs. Perhaps some sort of buzzard ...... ? :hmz:
