Post subject: Anyone know what this is?

We've recently had a lot of Red Kites released near here.
This is similar, but slightly larger size and has a long thin, flat tail (a Kite's is forked).
I used to fly a Buzzard myself and I don't think it's one of them.
Unortunately it was flying high overhead so there's no reference point to size and this is the most I can enlarge it without losing more detail.
It was on the edge of a hill and it semed to be circling and grabbing thermals.

Or a predator drone loitering over a soon-to-be-dead red skwirrel.

grrrrrr!

I've had a bird expert on my Facebook page suggest it might be a White-Tailed Eagle.
Be great if it was but I've never heard of one being seen around here before.

- WikiPedia
The Eagle's diet is varied, including fish, birds, carrion, and, occasionally, mammals. Many birds live largely as scavengers, regularly pirating food from otters and other birds, and carrion is often the primary food source during lean winter months.
