Confirmed based on colour, small head shape, short tail length and backswept wing typical of slow glide.

I wonder if this might be a young adult - it has adult colours but appears to still have part of the white patch in the primaries of a young bird...

Thanks Ryu, I expect you are correct. There seem to be a few of varying ages around this year.
