Gordon Battersby submitted these photos from the Saturday Outing to iPhiti.
Yes, mystery raptor is a young African Harrier-hawk. The bare face, shaggy nape and long bare legs are the give-away.
I was going to name the other mystery bird, but will keep it a secret for the ID challenge. It is a fairly common bird, though.
Lovely photos; was the mystery raptor not an African Harrier Hawk?
