'We have been graced by Foxton's first recorded Turtle Doves in recent times, sadly both males. The first turned up last Sunday, and then a second appeared yesterday morning. Somewhat bizarrely, both discoveries were in my garden to start with - in fact both birds were in my garden yesterday morning.

 ... they have provided some rather beautiful photo opps. One may have already gone. I am pretty sure the other one won't stay much longer.
 Anyway, here are some pics - the two birds tussling are a collared dove and a turtle dove. 'MM
