On behalf of David who sent in an email:-

Large bird, large bright yellow beak, white underside, dark brown neck feathers, black wings. 

Observed through a spotting scope for half an hour perched on a heavy fence at Cors Caron nature reserve, Tregaron, Wales

Can anyone identify?

Chances are that it was an adult male Sparrowhawk. Orange/brown chest feathers with a dark grey back and wings. Although only the top part of the beak would have been yellow.
