Tetrad work throws up isolated records of EUROPEAN TURTLE DOVES

European Turtle Dove (Dave Bilcock)
Highlights of my TTV in TL 43B (Anstey) today were a pair of Marsh Tits feeding at least two young in Scales Park, and better still a EUROPEAN TURTLE DOVE which was purring and showing well at Coltsfoot (approx TL 411 321).

There was also a purring EUROPEAN TURTLE DOVE on Thursday at Wood End, (which is in the middle of nowhere between Stevenage and Buntingford) at TL 321 256. That bird was so deeply hidden in a large area of bushes that I couldn't see it (per Graham Knight).
