Hi Jack,
There is a very good video sequence I think in the "Hunters of the skies" or some similar name, of a black falcon hunting a rabbit, that would be consistent with your description. The rabbit was unsurprisingly terrestrial. Although I think that was a tame bird. I don't recall ever having seen a black falcon flying low, apart from one time that I saw one take a dead snake off the road, from under the noses of two Brown Falcons, and taking grasshoppers being flushed by a family of Emus. Yes they can fly very fast but don't always do so.
