Unknown raptor Irvinbank QLD

I thought this was a brown falcon but it had an unusually long tail. Can anyone confirm or point me in another direction. Taken a couple of days ago in Irvinebank, west of Cairns.

Hard to see much detail but check out a Brown Goshawk. The upper wing pattern is a bit tricky but striping on tail and shape look right. Any more pictures or can you link to a higher resolution one?


No more photos but brown goshawk would fit with the long tail. Thanks.
