These photos were taken in July when the young have left the nest (fledglings) but are still being fed by their parents and learning important skills before they can become independent and find their own territory. The adults are more blue grey in colour, have horizontal barring across the body and the base of the bill and around the eye are yellow. The fledglings are browner in colour, have vertical striations and no yellow colouring. They like large open spaces for hunting and high perches so you often find them in urban areas such as Chichester Catherdral and in old quarries.
