Booted Eagle

Hieraaetus pennatus


These are listed as migrants and summer visitors but many of them live here throughout the year. From my observations along the south coast over the last month this appears to be true for many other species also.

I have added more pictures, there were two of these over the marshes. One has more spots and streaks below and no tail band. They appeared to be flying together as a pair most of the time.
