More from Salle. The most moving thing about old pews and choir stalls is the way the tops of them shine. They are polished by hundreds of years of human hands. A peregrine just grounded a pigeon in my garden. It must have missed the kill on the way down, otherwise I would have heard the pigeon's neck snap in mid air. The pigeon got away; the peregrine was not that impressive in level flight. I see what Baker meant about these birds. They are moving.
