Two Turtle Doves

Just larger than a blackbird the turtle dove is a summer visitor to Southern and Eastern England. Sadly it is a on the Red List of conservation concern due to several steep declines in numbers. These declines are possibly due to a lack of corn and seeds available during breeding season.

These little birds are really pretty, lets hope there will always be many many more than two left to see in our countryside during the summer.
