Little Eagle? - Central Coast NSW Australia (1 Viewer)

Hi guys, I'm very new to this so probably an easy one but is this a Little Eagle ( Hieraaetus morphnoides)? It was on the Central Coast of NSW Australia. Thanks in advance.Screenshot_20230219_090139_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20230219_090119_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20230219_090102_Gallery.jpg
I would say yes, however others more familiar with the species might be of a different persuasion.

Not a little eagle for me. That basically looks like a common buzzard, whereas this looks like a kite. A square-tailed kite perhaps (white eye etc)
