We heard at COG meeting last week, of a Peregrine Falcon in Brindabella range somewhere (next to Canberra ACT) that among other things had a Long-tailed Jaeger found as prey at its nest. How a sea bird got there is a mystery. It was apparently identified at the museum in Sydney. Thereby it joins the select small group of three pelagic species that have been found (dead) in the Canberra region. I hope that the finder doesn't mind me mentioning it here.

Hi all
Some years ago while surveying HMAS Cerberus for birds I watched a Peregrine knock a White Ibis out of the sky while it was flying with a group. Not quite a Sea Eagle but it was certainly spectacular.
