  I was lucky enough to take a pic of a raptor which was making a dive. When it was around 10 meters off the ground it suddenly changed direction going slightly upwards, but didn't catch anything. Again they are pics from my house in Coria del Río. According to another post in the forum, could it possibly be a booted eagle? Thanks in advance,
Carlos.

Hi Carlos
Yes, a Booted Eagle, pale morph. You can also see the very contrasting upper wing pattern on the final photograph, that I mentioned on your other post. They will swoop down like this for small mammals, reptiles and birds on the ground.
