The Turtle Dove is becoming increasingly rare, a fact proven by the bird's Red List status. My local Nature Reserve has a resident breeding pair of these beautiful birds & members are very excited at the prospect of seeing young, especially as the adults often settle in areas that provide good views.
Thank you for your approval of my previous upload "Drab Lady." Special thanks to Carol (CarolG) for her much-valued UA.
