    When was the last time you heard or saw a Turtle Dove?.

    For me it must be at least 3 years since I heard one calling.

    I've heard four calling birds.

    You know where this is going. (Hint! Christmas classic!) :lol:

    But seriously, Where I live there are something like three cooing pigeons, two menacing magpies, one irritating blackbird and a ****load of cheeping starlings and sparrows.

    All that in and around my backyard too.

    It's one bird I have never seen or heard, although apparently they have been seen in this area.

    In this country, you're very lucky to hear a Turtle Dove as they're being pushed out by Collared Doves and Wood Pigeons and are now back on their way south. Well done for spotting it.

    Grey Wagtails are cute - nearly as cute as the flock of 40-plus Long-tailed Tits than amble through my garden most days.
