Stock Dove, Undisclosed Site, Essex 5th March 2011
Regularly seen up on the tip but generally fairly scarce elsewhere in the local region. .
Stock Dove
Rock Dove
Rock Dove - The Haa, Fair Isle October 2017
This bird looks to be about as good as a wild Rock Dove will get plumage wise
Turtle Dove - The Havens October 2015
Sign of the times as this was both a year tick (actually seen) and a Fair Isle tick, a bird becoming increasingly more difficult to get. This fine bird spent a little while in the Havens one day and as can be seen it was rather confiding.
