ID Help please
sorry about the quality but can anyone suggest what this is ? Seen in Somerset UK. I thought it was our local buzzard at first, but now I don't think so. We have had Sparrow Hawks in the garden, but I thought this looked more like a Harrier mostly due to the length of the tail. Anyway I'm stuck so please give it your best shot.

Looks like a Sparrowhawk to me

I would guess Sparrowhawk too. Long tail and rounded wings tend to support it.

Thanks guys, it would fit, as I said we have seen a female several times.
