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.
You may also want to watch:
"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.
