    Another clip on in the programme showed a peregrine falcon keeping pelicans from it nest are. A little tweek of the beak and they came out of the sky faster than one of my RC helicopters. I'm sure you can hear the pelican swear.

    They did an experiment from a hot air ballon and if i remember correctly it was in exsess of 200mph the bird reached before having to pull up for the ground so 240 mph is possible in my opinion.

    Awesome, a simple beak flick, I wonder how many times she tried that before she got it right?

    That same bird was on a documentary chasing it's lure held by BASE jumpers. In the end it got bored and grabbed the jumper's hand and tried to turn him into the cliff. They stopped the experiment at that point.
