    Would say a bird of prey but with my gaffer tape repaired glasses that's about the best I can do.

    Rounded wing tips? Definitely a broad wing, not a falcon.
    I reckon it was being hounded by the crows and took to the ariels for a rest in what looks to be a fair breeze, thats why it was hovering.

    What does make me smile is that people are surprised at seeing this in a city.
    I regularly saw a big hen Spar hunting the gardens in the centre of Derby but often wondered how many more people even noticed it

    The call gives it away....Falconidae......ie Kestrel ,probably a male...I breed them so I am familiar with the alarm call, hope that clarifies

    Do you think the bird in the clip is making the noise though?
