Just managed to grab a photo of this as it flew over the house - is it a juvenile red kite? The tail isn't very forked compared to others I have seen. Thanks for helping!
It's an almost textbook example of Dick Forsman's description of juvenile Red Kites in his Flight Identification of Raptors (2016).
All the best -
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
