Some manner of Hawk

I was walking up William Street between York Street and King Street in London this morning (August 27, 2014) and took a photo when this handsome devil landed on the lamp post in front of me.
This was between 08:00 am and 08:10 am.
I'm not the best when it comes to identifying birds, but I'm fairly certain it's not a peregrine or an osprey.
Regardless, I feel quite fortunate to have crossed paths with this fantastic looking fellow.
Thank you for sending us this report and your great picture of this raptor.
I am no expert either, but I'm sure one of our readers will be able to identify this bird!
