Nope, but one (probably rubbish one) from me!
I've only got the RSPB British book so possibly wrong area, but as you don't say a size (and ignoring the fact my suggestion isn't a hawk) the description of white cheeks. streaky chest, pointy wings, short arm, it sounds like a Hobby looks, according to the books image.
In reply to PimperneBloke:
Not at all, PB. I respect your judgement.

I'm not sure that, at this time of year, we've much of a difference re small raptors. We have more Lamergeiers and vultures than you. But otherwise...

Sorry, I was using that term in a loose way. It's a raptor.
I very much appreciate your call. Will hang around and see if there are any other takers.
All the best -

And who told you my middle name?
Hyphenated, of course? Mrs Dave did, when she invited me and Mrs PB over to try out the guest wing

I shall take that up with her immediately, accompanied by the requisite glass of wine.
Sounds an excellent idea! Enjoy

Yes TeeJay, definitely a small raptor.
I've already been in touch with the "obs" team here, and they've already rejected our tentative ID as nigh on impossible.
Just looking for second opinions.
