Many thanks, those are the exact birds i had put them down as. It just goes to show that having kept track of the ID help/needed threads and the bird challenge I was able to ID both birds within seconds of seeing them just from what i have learnt reading these threads. many thanks to all who give their time to these endless requests it is greatly appreciated.

Hi All,

Took a burst of pics of this Martial Eagle not far from Skukuza in June. Have layered them together to make this image of the bird swooping down from it's perch.
