Definitely no Goshawk, but what is it then?

I'll leave that to others, but may throw in two suggestions:

Not that I'd go out on a limb and say it's a Willow, but can the white spot be some food matter?

It does show an uncannily large bib for a Marsh. I too would like to know where the photo was...

Well, with vocal birds it's a lot easier, their calls are VERY different, Curlews have their mournful whistle, while Whimbrels sound more like a hysterically giggling teenage girl.

Good call, but could well be just a toe peeping through as they've got pretty strong/large feet.

IMO the feather patterns/colouration (very grey on the primaries) on the wings, and in particular the...

The first three are Curlews. I get more of a Whimbrel feel on the last one, but the head-markings aren't very clear cut.

Not quite yet. it's a 2cy bird, mainly still in (very worn and faded) juvenile plumage. This is supported by juvenile type tail, and pale iris.

8-Pyes, Hawk Moth caterpillar, but hardly ligustri in October (most are fully grown by August in Denmark, but probably even earlier in Belgium), so perhaps convolvuli or even nerii, though I gather...

I don't think the bill us actually that curved, nor that the forehead is that greenish.
These artefacts(?) aren't enough to dispell my immediate ID of a White Wagtail.

Been birding in Tunisia some thirty times, mostly in the seven- and eighties.

Where was the bird seen, and on which date?

Was it at Cap Bon, my favourite raptor spring migration spot?

Or was it...
