Bird humerus ID

Subject

Dear all, I've got a bird humerus (right) which I have not managed to ID with confidence. It is from a medieval feature in Dublin, Ireland. I believe it is some sort of falcon/hawk, the closest match I found in the reference collection available to me was Peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus), but I don't think that is what it is. Measurements: Dip=23.82; SC=6.58. Any help is appreciated. All the best, Jonny Geber, osteologist jgeber@mglarc.com
