hello Grotto. I believe that's what it is.  My daughter called in a little while ago and identified it.  I had been having trouble because it was a juvie.   
Thanks so much for your help
Cheers

Hmm, I was just going to say could it be a juvey brown goshawk, so I guess I'm not too far off.

  [welcome] Stephi Welcome to the forum. 

I believe in a post above it was noted the Shot was in Tasmania (Launceston)  Do you have a book on Aussie birds?  That would be very cool.  If Not here is a good Bird site I find very helpful http://www.waratahsoftware.com.au/wp_birds_birds.html
