Oriental Turtle Dove - revisited

Oriental Turtle Dove

Well the bird of 2011 for me so far was still there today, occasionally doing its bit for charity when visiting gardens but being seen much more frequently from the road itself. The bird is still favouring the "The Lays" and in particular the trees at the North end of the road.
Poor light and distance ruled out any photographs on my part but many thanks go to Peter Barker for allowing me to use his superb images in this post, his website - is also well worth a visit.

  1. I suspect that I have seen a pair in the North this week, but I would need to hear the call of this bird before I could say it was a possibility.
    I've READ descriptions of it's call but an actual recording would help.
