Raptor

Nothing about this suggests a Kestrel, really. Plumage resembles more that of a larger raptor. Did you get any other photos?

Slightly confused by it at the moment...

Edit...just seen the Buzzard ID suggested and that seems a better idea, though the visible face looks rather odd for Buzzard.
