Several people were watching this bird of prey with binoculars or telescopes. The perch appears to have been provided by the Wakefield Naturalists Society.
Wakefield Cathedral

The parish church of All Saints contains some elements dating from the 12th to 15th centuries, but it was largely rebuilt 858-1874 by Sir George Gilbert Scott; it became a Cathedral in 1888, beating Halifax to the honour. It is now one of three cathedrals in the Anglican Diocese of Leeds (the others being Ripon and Bradford).

Listed grade I (list entry 1258237).
