Thanks Isv, you know your birds. It does indeed look like a Sparrowhawk. https://www.birdguides.com/articles/identification/march-id-tips-separating-small-raptors/Hobby still has a vertical stripes. All Falcons are with sharp, relatively narrow wings.
The bird on the photo has broad wings. And eyes - they look like the eyes of the hawks. It's somewhat easy to make mistake here because of the position of the tail - at that angle it looks short, not as in the hawks. I would bet for young Sparrow Hawk but the neck is relatively long (as in the Goshawk).
