Wandering Peregrine Falcon

G'day all

Peregrine means Wanderer I seem to recall.  I heard third-hand today of an
injured Peregrine Falcon at a wildlife rescue shelter in Heywood (southwest
Victoria).  It had a band and was apparently banded in Darwin.  I don't have my
Hanzab with me but this sounds like a fair distance for a Peregrine to wander.

I'll look it up tonight but if anyone has the relevant volume handy - what long
distance movements have been recorded before in Australia?

The bird is apparently recuperating at Healesville Sanctuary.
