Good photo, interesting, I wonder what the peregrine thinks of the gargoyle.

Where pigeons roost you'll find them. Well done, Colin.

Has it caught a pigeon? There appears to be odd feathers to the left.
Nice one Colin.

There is a distinct similarity in the expressions of the gargoyle and the falcon.

Excellent photo. Under a government licence our group puts red "Darvic" (a kind of plastic) rings on young Peregrines throughout Greater MAnchester - I think I can just glimpse one here, but the white letters aren't showing. If anyone spots the code, please post it.

They see eye to eye, at least. Great clear shot from the ground, good zoom lens.
