Eagle?

Observed: 26th April 2011 By: mbeardmbeard’s reputation in Birds

Description:

This one may really test the expert birders out there! Received the photo from a third party who included the following description:
[quote]...and saw a very large bird soaring around the house and woods. Much bigger and darker than a buzzard (and without the one or two companions that buzzards hang about with), floating effortlessly high in the sky...must be an eagle? Blurry photo attached. It spent all afternoon in the area, flying out for half an hour or so and then back to the same place in the trees on a ridge."[unquote]

Mmmm...

...impossible to say from this picture, to be honest. If anything, I might say that the tail does not look very long, and so it could just be a Buzzard...but the blurring takes away any chance of an ID, realistically.
