Location: Shap fell by A6 I think at packhorse hill . 

Good view of raptor from distance as neared realised not buzzard!! Finger wings forked tail different circling pattern no doubt. Seen 100s in falsterbo over years…it’s a one-glimpse bird for me. was driving…. just before road rounds ‘headland’ on left descending to kendal. Will check exact location next time I’m there. Never seen one in Cumbria before yay.
