My Flickr photos
I saw the three photos on the Osprey thread and thought the 2nd photo looked more like a Red Kite with the general shape and what appears to be grey head and what looks like red tail colourings although it's only a tentative guess;
I've cropped it down here ,...

I'm inclined to agree with you, Hazel. The second photo looks similar in posture and markings to the Red Kite that visits me
PS Sometimes lighting conditions can give a false impression of colour particularly on such a long shot using a phone.
