Raptor in my backyard!

I went outside today to find a large Hawk eating its lunch in a tree in my apartment backyard. There was a Crow hopping around the tree branches trying to scare it away. It didn't work very well.
I was able to watch it for a while and get some great shots of it while standing right under the tree.
I think it is either a Cooper's Hawk or a Broad Winged Hawk.
I live in North East London and I've seen it around the area before looking for food, and i was lucky enough to see it attack a Pigeon last winter.
