    One of my lest favourite birds, (The hawk not the chickens) worse than a bloody Magpie.

    cracking picture, looks a little like a "hen harrier" did you find a gap some place then or think he went through the fence chasing something?

    Yes that is a female Spar!, I would say that she is a this years bird from the immature chest plumage.

    A musket ( male spar) would be quite a bit smaller, what a fascinating raptor and highly efficient. Get in the pen with a fishing net, get her caught up then she can be released and on her way.
