User's notes

A pair were seen (and the call heard) in the same area 2 weeks earlier. On that occasion one bird was in the sky circling, the second flew out of the nearby pines.

A tricky one without seeing its flight action, I would lean towards Little Eagle but interested to hear other comments.

Oohh!!! On a previous visit (with Jennie W) we confirmed the call as WK. I'll aim to get back there and see if I can get better shots. Or maybe you could come with me sometime? They seem to be hanging around in the area.
