While I was in the Cathedral Quarter, I took a stroll all round the outside of the cathedral to capture its different faces.
From the open ground on Full Street..
...and from Amen Alley.
Here, you can see the peregrine falcon nesting platform which was installed five years ago. Each spring, a pair of peregrines has raised chicks here. Although the peregrines weren't obliging me with a photo call, they are there again and on Monday, about 7 hours before these photos were taken, the eggs began to hatch! By the tenth, three chick births were confirmed. The Derby Cathedral Peregrine Project blog follows their progress.
If you want to see how they are getting on, the webcam is here.
