Eagles in Kruger NP

All birds from Kruger NP, the first and second from November, 25 an imm. bird,
three and four from December, 1.
I think the last two birds could be Wahlberg's Eagle.
If I would see the first bird in Europe I would say Lesser Spotted Eagle.

I know that LSE are fond of coming to ground to take ants and termites, I've seen it myself in Kruger, do GSE, Steppe or Imperial do it?

I've seen Bateleur doing it too.

Thanks Tom,
I did not have African Hawk Eagle on the screen, although we often found this species with Nest this year as well.
And yes Andy, also in the breeding area you can often watch LSE hunting on the ground (grasshoppers, frogs ...).
