Again from Kgalagadi June 2016. Is this a juvenile bateleur or an eagle of some description?

The first bird looks like a Tawny Eagle, the 2nd like a immature Bataleur

Thank you Arks, Umtali1, Karin Mitton and Hilda for identifying the pale Morph Tawny on the previous page. I have been away with work for the last week so couldn't thank you before. :thumbs_up:

Another one I am struggling with sorry, I only have a few unidentified ones to go :dance: This was spotted in October 2015 but I don't have a location at this time but somewhere in Kruger.
