Masai Mara November 2019

A few birds from Masai Mara in the last few days.

1) Some raptor seen as we were leaving. Only this one greatly cropped blurry photo.

2-3) Another raptor seen from the vehicle as we left. Have a few more shots, but I think these two might be enough?

4) Eurasian Honey Buzzard?

5) Super bad pic, but maybe a flycatcher of some sort? Any possibility of an ID?

Looking back at the pics again I'm thinking Augur Buzzard for 2-3.

Thanks!
When I added the honey buzzard to my eBird checklist it was flagged as rare, so would appreciate it if someone else could either confirm the ID or suggest a better one.

If Tom says that's what it was then... But in any case I agree

If not HB, what would you think it is?
