love a dove

One of a pair of collared dove (Streptopelia decaocto) that have been feeding regularly on our neighbour's bird table over the last week or so. The birds flush at the slightest intrusion. This photo was taken from the upstairs bedroom window.

On our bird table at least one of the recently fledged blackbird (Turdus merula) now feeding independently and both ads.; and a magpie (Pica pica) or two. Overhead seven swift (Apus apus) is the highest count to date.

Holly blue (Celastrina argiolus), small white (Pieris rapae) and large white (Pieris brassicae) butterflies present throughout the day.
