Hi Belinda,

I am getting confused by all of the photos but I am reasonably sure that the two birds in flight with the round tails are Brown Goshawks, not only because of the round tails but because of the length of the tails and the shape of the wings. The photo of the male in flight is a Collared Sparrowhawk, with shorter broader wings and a shorter tail.
