Smallest prey items taken by Peregrine falcon

For such a powerful raptor, it's often surprised me how Peregrine's will hunt, very small
prey, the smallest I've seen taken was a female Redstart.Which was fresh in off the sea, only to be taken mid air , the peregrine didn't even eat it's victim, just dropped it to the beach below.
I still have the Redstarts tail feathers in my possession.
Was wondering what other tiny prey forum members have seen taken.
