Buzzard?

Sorry to jump ship but I think Browntrumpet may be right. When I took the photo I thought it was a buzzard, it was only afterwards I thought it looked like a kestrel!

Interesting

Having downloaded the image and done as much as I can with it I too am going to jump ship, well at least abandon Kestrel. The confidence level is too high for me to agree a Buzzard; though I almost certainly would have agreed to an ‘It’s likely...’

No black tail band was the clincher.

I should add ....

... that it was hovering but not flapping its wings to do so (using the breeze to hover).

Raptor

'Fingered' wingtips also wrong for Kestrel.
