England’s model defender

Sitting atop the ramparts of St Anne’s C of E church in Royton and beneath a fluttering St George’s Cross flag is this bird of prey statue, keeping away any Pigeons that have intentions of lingering a little too long and overstaying their welcome in the belfry: a model English Falcon to scare away unwanted feathered interlopers, no less…

*Shot on a Canon 600d 18mp dSLR using a Tamron 55-200mm f/4-5.6 Di ll LD lens with settings at ISO-200, lens at f/5.6, metering mode set to spot and an exposure time of 1/1600 seconds*
