I'd agree Liri - likely to be a sparrowhawk. Fabulous birds
If you wait till late summer aym - you'll get those growhouses cheap as it's the end of the season. The small ones are easily available for about a tenner. Much cheaper than buying an expensive feeder. You don't need any real skills to put them together either - just use plastic coated wire. It's very light so it doesn't need heavy duty fixings either. Fix it to a fence or wall and hang a seed feeder inside. I also have a small fat holder in mine.
In the two winters since making it, the starlings have tried to use it twice , that I've seen. They don't like trying to get back out and they must spread the word to the rest of 'em to stay away!
Love the collared doves - don't see them very often here unfortunately.
