  • Not sure but here's a link to make viewing easier.

  • It looks like a Kestrel to me.

  • I don't think its a kestrel it looks bigger more like a Peregrine.

    This is a crop taken from your picture.


  • Thinking back I'd say it was bigger than a kestrel although I'll not rule it out, could it have been an owl? If Id got a look at its face I could probably had a lot more clues to go on :/
