Photograph of the month - Peregrine on local church tower

A pair of peregrine falcons are using the top 'windows' of St Peter's spire in Raunds. The one hunting and the other waiting (in the photo) for it's partner's return. This means birdwatchers can see peregrines on the church spires in Rushden, Higham and Raunds! It is suspected that the birds seen in Higham are the same as those in Rushden (a pair and a juvenile).
