Wonderful sitings at the cathedral today

We only popped in to see if there were any of the peregrines about and what a treat we had.  Both Mum and Dad were sitting on the decoration at the top end of the spire, one either side, and neither seemed to be keen on joining in.  In the air 2 sparrow-hawks were attacking another adult peregrine who in turn stooped and attacked one of them.  Then there were the 2 buzzards that came into our peregrines’ airspace but not close enough to warrant moving from their vantage points.  All of this occurring in the space of about 10 minutes.  As you will see below the acrobatics in the air were a very long way up so not the best of pictures but Mum and Dad look very healthy sitting in the sun.
