Fly thru Turtle

Managed an hour on the patch this morning before work and was rewarded with a fly-thru TURTLE DOVE, not a common bird in London these day's.

Turtle dove   (honest)

Other notables were a big increase in Swifts, still at least half a dozen Wheatears on site, a couple of Yellow Wags over and six each of both Ringed Plover and Dunlin in the bay.


  1. That Turtle Dove is a Mallard and is worse than my Leach's
