Taken yesterday morning. this picture by John Salloway, shows Mum calling the girls who had both turned up on Derby Cathedral.

I couldn't agree more Helen. Thankyou to you all for the comments. These are the only birds I photograph for the same reason. My kids say I have peregrinitus which is proberbly true. But when you get a shot like that which shows the birds true colours its a bug I'm happy to have.

if you want a simular condition to the above ie kiteitus go to harewood house in Leeds. You soon realise where they get there name from because they just hang in the aky simply hovering.
You just cant beat mother nature!!
