From the size I would say it is a pale chanting goshawk, the white eye stripe could mean it is in the final stages of morphing from juvenile to adult.

Not sure but think it is a Goshawk :hmz:

Look at the previous page 11 off a image of a Gabar Goshawk ...and you can see the difference with the brown stripes..

Thank you for all the nice comments.

I'm not sure whether you'll be able to see all the raptors in the photo, but there were loads of them! Just north of Nossob February 2012.
