Large Bird of Prey??


I was exploring a wood yesterday and i heard some buzzards so i went and sat in an opening in the woods and saw them fly around, they soon left but after waiting about 5 minutes this kestrel shaped bird flew over my head. It was the shape of a kestrel but it was about the size of a small buzzard it was really really fast though even against a head wind, it wasnt a seagul or a pigeon because it fanned its tale as it was flying, my biggest problem was is that it was a white sky due to low cloud so the colours had been lost and it was just a black sillouette. Thanks for your help
