Correction- (thanks Alastair!) it was a Hobby not a PF. 
Viewed through the car windscreen, I was deceived by the size (it looked much larger than the Hobby pair that used to inhabit Coroborree Park), the wings seemed longer and the back (main view!) a v dark grey. But closer viewing of photo shows the rufous below and the white bib/collar extending high up the neck to the top of the head.

Driving back this morning from a quick Goorooyaroo visit (2 Grey Butcherbirds, 2 Common Bronzewings - the small fired areas still smouldering in places) through the new Harrison/Franklin suburbs (apparent vegetative wastelands?), there was a Peregrine perched on a streetlamp east of Flemington flew across the road to the consternation of many galahs, then took off again when I circled round to get a better view.
