This beautiful bird was spotted perching in the conifer trees at the bottom of our garden. We are only a mile from Cannock Chase - a huge expanse of open heathland and woodland and there is a great deal of farmland nearby. We are also only a short distance from the Derbyshire Peak District. Could someone help me identify what type of bird this is? From the pictures I can find on the internet I am leaning towards a Goshawk although I know they are quite rare.
