Eagle at Lions Bluff Lodge/ Taita Hills in Kenya

The images of an eagle were shot at the Lions Bluff Lodge in the Lumo Wildlife Sanctuary south of the Taita Hills in Mid October 2018.
First I was thinking of a Tawny Eagle. But the longer tail, held close and what I thought smaller size which is difficult to judge in flight would vote for Wahlberg's Eagle (Aquila wahlbergi). Thanks for ID to the experts
Cheers
Johannes
