This could be hard as the information is not stored if the log entry (the deletion) was made by an account using the bot flag.

The api delete does not have a bot flag, I would assume there is no way to have a botflag for log entries like deletion.
That means nothing to filter for bot or non-bot actions on Special:Log

The meaning of "bot" on Special:RecentChanges does not mean "done by a bot account", it is more than "done with a bot flag"
