I have no idea, I'm going to take more trips to the same area to see if it maybe appear again one day, I waited 20-30 min before I spotted this one, it was fun!

It's definitely an Accipiter sp. (either Sparrow- or Gosh- hawk). I can't be sure, but by the relatively small head, long tail, apparently short wings I'll go with sparrowhawk.
