A pair of falcons here I think. Amur, hobby ? Taken at KTP in June.
I would say it's between Peregrine and Lanner Falcon.
They look more slight than Peregrine in the photos although size is always difficult to judge in pictures, there seems to be a hint of a rufous cap, although again it's hard to see. Taking distribution into account as well and I would say that it is a Juvenile Lanner Falcon.
Anyone more knowledgeable have any thoughts?

These photos could be of an immature Lanner Falcon weirdNumber. But let's wait for an expert's opinion.
