On behalf of Tony who sent in an email:-

About size of pigeon. Lives in wood and rarely flies in open space. Only heard in July August. Calls a lot, like a very high pitched seagull. Dark but with lighter underside.

Can anyone identify

Could be a Sparrowhawk looking at the sillhouette. That would also explain why it seldom flies in open spaces
