|In the very far distance saw a raptor slowly circling north of NTU, through the binoculars definitely not a honey buzzard. Through photos square tail, white patterns on upperparts, frontal view shows the very distinctive white spots on the shoulders even at distance.
|Circling, stayed a few minutes just going around, eventually too far off to see.
|Bright and sunny although my optics not very good.
|Seen dark morphs before and familiar with the id features.
|Observer's experience w/similar species
|Quite familiar with all confusion species, black kite, brahminy etc.
