The Preston Castle Gargoyle

I love gargoyles. Period. So I was all a’giddy when I looked up at the bell tower of the Preston Castle and saw one surviving gargoyle (i.e.: still had his head attached). One other fact. I love crows and ravens…beautiful birds with great sense of humor. 🙂 Guess who had a nest up there with the gargoyles?

Can you see him way up there on the back right?
