11:30 am off of Soundview Ave I observed a large dark bird flying slowly west obviously different than others.  I was able to scope it and observed a falcon shape being harassed by a herring gull. They were approximately the same size. This ruled out peregrine. I also observed a darker phase, blunted wing tips, thick wings, slow stiff wing beats. 
At Shippan Point now with no further sighting.
