These three newly hatched peregrine chicks look a bit grumpy.
But when photographer Chris Skipper captured the moment they had just been ringed.
A pair of peregrine falcons took up residence at the top of Cromer's 160ft-tall church tower earlier this year.
North East Norfolk Bird Club chairman Trevor Williams helped source a nesting box from the Owl and Hawk trust and it was installed.
Mr Skipper said: "They don't have expressions - it's just the way they look. The whole project's been going so well.
"When we put the box up, we did not know if they would go in it, but she was in there a week later, then he was in it. Both of them are first-time parents. "Three eggs have been laid so far."
A screen allowing church visitors to see video footage from the nesting box has been set up, and a manned watch point outside neighbouring Cromer Museum.
