You might need to use your imagination for this one to work out why I have included it in this month’s spiky challenge as it wasn’t the beaks, talons or whatever they are managing to balance on!

Pointy beaks, sharp talons and jagged bricks

  1. Well if it is not the spike the kestrels are perched on, nor their beaks or talons then it has to be the bricks! I am guessing the metal band is to try and keep it stable, but someone surely needs to go up there with a bucket of mortar! I realise that on a phone or tablet it is easy to enlarge a photo, but on a computer everything on the page is affected by zooming in. Why not allow us to click on the image to see it at full size?
    And on that grumpy note, I am off out into the rain… sigh!

    1. oh dear Jo was right the grumpiness is coming out!! It must be because they are singular photos as when I create galleries there is no problem. I agree annoying . . .you will just have to hop on a plane and come and see for yourself!!! (No rain here ;-))

  2. Um… I can see some spikes, but whether any of them is the spike you are meaning…the perch spike, perhaps? Then again, I confess I could see a spike in a cotton wool ball by now!

    1. Well spotted 🙂 it terrifies us, there’s another chimney a few yards away that is even worse. Goodness knows what Fred Dibnah would have had to say about them!!!

  3. Cute falcons and the serrated patterns of the chimney as background makes me wonder if it going to fall inwards or outwards. Guessing the metal band is there to hold it in place.

    1. It’s such a shame they have not looked after some of the old chimneys, there’s another not far away which tilts and is beside the railway!!
