Bird Finding Made Easy?

I was at the paddocks by Walthamstow marsh today (saw Meadow Pipits!) when a tannoy announcement floated over on the breeze and I picked out the words "Peregrine Falcon". Whaaat? I legged it to the sports field behind the ice rink where there is a large 'Countryside Live' event including falconry and bird ringing. The buggers at the door reckoned I was beyond schoolchild age and therefore not allowed in until Saturday/Sunday.
