Turtle Dove

Swarovski kindly agreed to fix my bins this week and sent me a loan pair free of charge, and I'd forgotten just how nice it is to go birding with proper optics. Despite the recent northerlies, there were quite a few migrants here and there, including a cracking Turtle Dove (only my second on the Lizard) and a Yellow-browed Warbler. The dove gave me a bit of a run-around, offering the very briefest of views when flying across the track down to Bass Point, but I bumped into it again in Lizard Village. Here's a couple of photos, along with one or two other more common things.

ps - expect more on the Wheatear in due course.


  1. Turtle Dove is very beautiful bird indeed. I like it very much and found this site very effective and informative for such a good collection of beautiful birds.

  2. I am very fond of your blogging and posting. I like you every post
    Nice Article thanks for sharing
