Stock Doves

We now have a pair of these gorgeous little columbids feeding and displaying in the garden: as can be seen, the male (?) has a really well-marked green and purple 'collar' that positively glows in the sunshine.

As I said in an earlier post, these excellent birds deserve more recognition in order to reduce the chance of them following the Turtle Dove into oblivion...

Another terrific garden bird today was a mint-fresh Goldcrest that alighted on my office window ledge! I was far too slow to obtain a photo.
