Saw this beauty flying over today very high up, when i checked it i first thought it was buzzard but on closer inspection i dont think it is, i know its not a red tail either, it doesn't look like a goshawk or falcon or kestral.
Any ideas folks

I am thinking maybe a Broad Winged Hawk. A little hard to make out the tail and wing markings but this is what I think it is.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

I think it is a Juvenile Goshawk by the shape of the wings, the wing tips, the pattern on the tail and the shape of the tail.

Wing and tail markings match Cooper's and Red shoulder, but the long tail looks like Cooper's.

UK raptor, so would think possibly Sparrowhawk.

Any indication of size would help - how did it compare to say a Kestrel or Buzzard??
