Eagle in Mallorca (1 Viewer)

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 it’s a Bonelli’s or Booted Eagle. My initial impression was that it was larger than the Booted we normally see but I couldn’t be certain with the distance.

Thanks!

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!

Here are some photoshop brightened versions, I can’t see enough white for an Osprey up the wing?
