Spectacular attempt at a pigeon

Last night Dad attempted to catch a pigeon.  Coming out of the nest he spotted a pigeon below and made after it at speed.  He cleared the stonework of the choir and pursued it westbound along the top of the buttresses until he realised he was headed for the solid wall of the bell tower at which point he did a spectacular turn up and over the roof.  The whoosh of the wings was incredible.  Watched by David, and Graham from the RSPB, neither had seen or heard anything like this before!Having failed he went off and got  a small offering for Mum and then proceeded to eat it himself!!!
