No : krestel (Falco tinnunculus).

Black falcons (Falco subniger) have far longer pointed wings than New Zealand falcon and when closed their wings almost reach the tip of their tail. New Zealand falcon wings are more rounded and fall well short of the tip of the tail when closed.

That was my other option - I just thought the wings were more like a merlin. Size is the obvious difference, but that doesn't work with nothing for scale!
