I realised I hadn't upload a bird of prey recently so I have pulled one from my archives. I believe it to be a Honey Buzzard but I'm unsure so please let me know if I'm wrong. I was hoping to get out with the camera this weekend but plans have changed and it looks less likely.
I am still upto my ears so at the moment I only have time to click and run at varios times during the day so forgive me, I know you all understand as it happens to everyone at some point.
Have a great weekend.
Steve.

A great shot! I don't think it's a honey buzzard, they look different... Did you take this at Huxley's? If so, I believe it's Cisco, a hybrid falcon. If not, this bird looks exactly like him. Wink Lovely capture!
