Kestrels sometimes come into gardens, but sparrowhawks are more common visitors. Have a look at its eyes. Sparrowhawks have piercing yellow or orangey irises, whereas kestrels' eyes are all-dark.

We've had one in our garden for the last 2 days. It chased 2 young pigeons into our patio doors & they both died of broken necks. We've lived here for 18 years & never had a bird fly into the doors before. Very upsetting for the kids.
Beautiful birds though - hope that one's not 'our' one.
