Turtle Doves at Ruardean Hill

Saturday 2nd June 2012
It was Mark's idea to go to Ruardean Hill this morning and it paid off. Between us we had made a few trips there recently, without finding the target species in one of its last remaining county haunts, so things didn't look good. We were pleased to find however, first one, then two TURTLE DOVES singing and displaying in the Ruardean Walk area. This was very heartening, and let's hope we can stop the decline nationally and save this species from disappearing as a British breeder. Read about the RSPB's OPeration Turtle Dove here.
