With there being Pheasants in the recording it sounds like it's near or in woods.
It's certainly calling in a group of three unlike that Sparrowhawk, if Amanda is on Twitter she could tweet the BTO and see what they think.

Sorry Amanda since I posted that I've had a look and you cannot add a sound file to Twitter I can try tweeting the link to Tony's post.
I've tweeted a link toTony's post to the BTO, RSPB birders and sheffield Bird Study Group, hopefully someone will have time to have a look.
Hi. It's a Sparrowhawk. Goshawk has a very similar sound but, despite the possibility of some nuance being lost in the recording, the high pitch is a good match for Sparrowhawk.
