Oh dear - I was hoping to avoid the sort of responses that has been

What I was really looking for (perhaps a bit too subtly) was someone more
familiar with the black falcon that I am (it's a bird that seems to have
avoided me) to tell me whether or not the glide/rapid wingbeats but overall
the rather leisurely low flight rules out this species so that I can either
count it as my first sighting in the ACT, consign it to the possibles list,
or discount it altogether.

What is clear is that it wasn't either a brown falcon or an A raven, the two
most likely species to be mistaken for a black falcon.
