Gee that is a harsh one. Suggesting that 'falcon' implies the bird is a she. Yes, but this terminology of 'falcon' and 'tiercel' is pretty much a falconry issue and not much used by us lot. For what it is worth, assuming it is one of the same two birds, a pair of Peregrine Falcons have been reported on buildings on Marcus Clarke St and other nearby buildings in the city previously in recent years. I know I have reported a pair there, on this list, a year or two ago.

I hesitate to say this, but 'falcon' implies the bird is a she. The male (ie 'he') would be a tiercel.
So Attenborough is not an issue and Sandras message should be construed as the 'he' being a reference to the erstwhile photographer.
