Honey Buzzard?

A Grey Seal was very close inshore today off the Pier Head at 3.00 pm, nosing at people on the ferry!

I was working in Allerton yesterday near Allerton Golf Course, a Raven (probably a young bird) was in the area all day, an unusual sight perched on house roofs! However I have suspected them of breeding locally over the last couple of years.
Other birds included Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, Blackcap, and at about 4.00 pm a large long winged/tailed raptor flew west on flat to slightly down curved wings. Although not a 100% certain ID, the bird was very reminiscent of Honey Buzzard.
