Spotted this today eating off the ground underneath the bird table. It was with some collared doves but appeared smaller.
No interactions present.
Very unusual sighting....
Indeed late - the possibility of Oriental Turtle Dove made me look hard. But the dark centres of the scapulars are pointed so it isn't an Oriental.
Nice thing to see at any time - but a really good garden bird nowadays! Perhaps blown off course by the recent string winds.
