My initial thoughts were this was probably a Crested Goshawk but when I zoomed in on it I started having doubts. Perhaps it could be a juvenile but that's not a plumage I really know. It was taken at a distance and this has been heavily cropped but there is visible detail so would welcome any pointers members here can offer. Many thanks

It looks more like a Buteo to me. Not sure which species though...
