Eagle in Mallorca

This flew over my garden this morning. Sadly it was super distant (hence the terrible shot), but I was wondering if anyone with more knowledge than me may be able to say whether itís a Bonelliís or Booted Eagle. My initial impression was that it was larger than the Booted we normally see but I couldnít be certain with the distance.

Thanks!

I think it is really hard to tell on those images but my first impression was actually Osprey.

Thanks everyone! I must admit I never considered Osprey while watching it, but I too can see that in the pictures. Thanks for the help!
