Well no reason why it wouldn't be the same bird. This one I saw was so pale that the first specific thing I noticed about it, (I was hanging out washing then went inside to grab binoculars fortunately it was flying towards me and the binoculars were close and it stopped flying in a straight line when it got overhead and started circling), .... was that it appeared to have a white rump, at least the edges, as visible from below. Quickly after it was obvious that the shape and the markings were typical of a very pale Little Eagle. Where you are is only a few minutes flying time for an Eagle from me, with plenty of suitable stop off points in between.
