Bateleur-a-like tail-less Common Buzzard

What a weird bird today over Mortonhall, Edinburgh - an almost completely tail-less Common Buzzard. Superficially Bateleur like in appearance but not really as exciting to watch... Nevertheless, not something I have seen before. I can only wonder what has caused this loss of tail feathers and hope that it is not a sign of persecution...
