Yup, I love my ornithology so I'll weigh in here with an opinion. Defo not a sparrow hawk IMO, or a kestrel. Not a buzzard either I think. Flight shape, size, colour , all wrong combos for them lot.
I'd go for some kind of harrier. But most likely a kite. Theyre more common these days, really increasing their range. Lovely shot and lucky you. Quick on the draw!
