unidentified flying object

we saw this handsome bird gliding in front of us this morning for several hundred yards. I am not sure what it was, it might be a very pale buzzard but it did not act or fly like a buzzard, but more like an owl and paused briefly to attack something in the grass verge before flying on. It seemed completely unconcerned by our presence which is most un-buzzard like. It was not a juvenile herring gull.
