And don't forget to look out for the Pied Flycatchers as well!

Hi Finchy,

Glad to hear about you getting the Peregrine, a great bird indeed.
I thought i saw 2 perching on a factory roof but it turns out they are life like models to stop the pigeons pooping on the roof, i had it on my list and everything.

Stupid me,
Steven

They'll have to move the models around, or else the pigeons will get used to them and poop on the models instead . . . so don't be surprised if they're 'perching' at a different place next time
