This bird is big, about Vulture size, but the white in the wings makes me think a bathing Kori Bustard??

Not easy to say from this photo. I would guess that it is a bathing white-backed vulture. They are also well known for bathing.

thanks for the id on the Martial. Have another for you that Matthys posted again. Is it a different bird? Have two shots of it. I know it is hard to really tell from the web cam postings but any help would educate us :?

That would also be martial eagle.

It's the only eagle this time of the year with fully feathered legs and the white below and upper dark coloration in the Park.
