Unknown bird passing by woodland, over farmland, large standing waterbody nearby. (added via Android)

Photo 1

Unknown bird, possibly raptor. Mobbed by almost every small passerine it passed. Regular, flowing wingbeat. Seen in far distance, flight only, hence low quality photo. Size, difficult to say but I would say wingspan somewhere between lapwing and curlew.

This is clearly a bird, so

This is clearly a bird, so move it out of '?' and into 'Birds' where it will get attention. I would guess at female kestrel.

???? (frustration)

It's titled 'unknown bird' so you think they would actually have guessed that it really was a bird to be uploaded into 'bird' section!
