Eagles are massive - probably not one...

I thought maybe a caracara, but it should have a crest. Could be an osprey I suppose...

Hey JDelage, we have osprey here at the lake. They swoop out of the sky directly into the water and come away with a fish, a sight to behold. I have edited the original post and included my friend’s thoughts that it’s a red shouldered hawk. My lousy photo using an iPad Pro from distance doesn’t show it but the mottled feathers and other markings seem to suggest the hawk. Thanks for your input.

Hawk seems right.

Interesting tidbit about ospreys: they are (one of) the most well distributed bird of prey in the world. They're found in most places around the world: Amerticas, Europe, Africa,Asia, etc, etc. We have a healthy population here in Seattle. I've seen them being harassed by eagles on occasion.

Trip up to the North East of England 

Stop en route to pick up new belt from Charlie at Equus Leather 

Charlie's workshop is in Darlington, County Durham, off the beaten track in the roaming countryside 

Shots of the Equus workshop building

The leather makers in action - a chap on belts, a lady making watch straps (no pic)

I got a slightly slimmer belt at 1.25” (for chinos mainly, hopefully works with jeans too)

British Racing Green. Beautifully soft and supple. Satin west end roller 

Lovely belt at a good price point. Can see myself returning in the future

Thanks @lance for the recommendation!
