HANZAB mentions movements in the range 100-450km.

Some northern hemisphere Peregrines are long distance migrants,
e.g. breeding in the arctic and "wintering" as far south as Argentina.

Its interesting that there are no records (according to HANZAB) of other
subspecies reaching Australia.  Surely they must.

Also its odd that there isn't a New Zealand population.
