This is a fairly large bird. I think that’s fairly obvious given its size relative to the tree in the foreground.
I won’t say much more than that. It’s tricky as the sleek, from-behind profile doesn’t give much to go on, but there’s enough evidence here to arrive at the right answer…just.
The answer will be revealed in tomorrow’s Week in Pictures.

Tawny or Steppe Eagle?
Seems like a raptor of some sort, but I’ll await your reveal!

Is it a vulture ?
African hawk eagle??

Brown Snake eagle
Could be a Tawny or a brown snake eagle?
I believe it’s a white backed vulture
