Our Turtle Doves Need To Be Saved


I was alarmed watching BBC Breakfast that there are now four British birds on the danger list. I knew about puffins, but never realised that turtle doves--like Gordon--have been now added to this list. We've had a pair returning to us every year, and breeding in the garden--this year there were seven, so I like to think we're doing our part. They're fairly tame, and most mornings can be found sitting in a line outside the back door, or on the fence surrounding the compound. To us, they're the only migrants we want to see flocking into this country, and more needs to be done to protect them.
