Peregrine Falcon question (1 Viewer)

Is it a Peregrine, though?

Do you suggest a different species? If my ID is wrong, I would sure like to know it.
The sighting was in early dawn, but was obvious to me thru the bins that it was a Peregrine. I had better lighting while observing thru the binoculars.
By the time I took the photo the bird was already on the backdrop of the sunrise.

But I think it's still quite clear from the (bad) photo that it is a falcon rather then a Kestrel or an Osprey.

Sorry, looking at this one my phone screen the bird, clearly a falcon, seemed quite slight for a peregrine. Taking a good look on a much bigger screen, I can't see what else it could be other than peregrine.
