You probably will eventually as they are spreading fast. I never saw one here until 5-6 years ago, now they are here every day, sometimes several.

There were a group of six of them living near by, a couple of years ago. I photographed them. They were here for here for more than a year.
Now nowhere to be seen. Obviously moved on to another spot.

Having big roads with plenty of road-kill is an advantage

Re: Red kite passes by

The other day another smaller bird of prey flew quite low over the garden. It had a large fan shaped tale with stripes across it. Probably too small to be a buzzard, so maybe a sparrowhawk or a Peregrine falcon? We're in suburbia but with quite a lot of green wooded spaces nearby. There are plenty of pigeons for food


We're really blessed for wildlife; there was even a bat swooping around last night.

Almost guaranteed to be a Sparrow hawk. Typical of them to fly low over gardens in the hope of surprising small birds.

Plus the description fits.
