Dick Forsman by email 18 /05/2020 : '....it is an adult, either a Steppe or a Tawny. A small minority of the dark form adult Tawnies can be confusingly similar to  adult Steppe Eagles, and this bird happens to be one of those. I cannot find anything in the plumage to nail the species beyond doubt, but the structure of the head looks perhaps more like a Tawny, but this is IMO not enough to make a claim. The date would be OK for both species as well.'
