Annoying!!

So annoying, I know this bird so well and yet I can’t place it – someone put me out of my misery please.

One thing’s for certain this is not an African Fish-eagle. Totally wrong colouration all round for an adult; no V of white down the back, white trousers and no yellow in the bill for a start. Juvenile AF-es have brown heads. Tail’s too long as well come to that.

Armchair tick for me then, and a life list addition! Thanks.
