So shy, so cautious, having a perfect+ sight, and so magnificent. Common Buzzard. Pity it didn't let me closer. I took the image you can see below at approx. 50m.

Thanks for watching.

Learned something here.  My thought was that this bird looked like a hawk.  With some Googling, reallized they are called buzzards in Europe and hawks in North America.
