My first impression was Teal or Garganey, and not a wader, but I am not sure.

If only there was a secondary or two! I could imagine that being part of a Redshank.... Unusual for a Peregrine not to leave an intact skeleton (bar head) and a neatly stripped body cavity.. Perhaps a Fox helped himself to the reat

Very tricky, but I'd go with Teal. I'm fairly sure it's a duck. You could use wing length to rule out eg mallard etc. It's unlikely to be a Garganey, but you never know!
