European Turtle Dove

First thing this morning I had a look at Bowling Green Marsh and Goosemoor for yesterdays ( Reported ) Purple Heron but as expected there was no sign of it today !
So I decided to go up to Lower Haldon on the half - chance that there might be a European Turtle Dove around , I went to the spot where one was seen last year but there no luck there so I decided to walk further into the forest and I picked up one on call but it was distant so I walked on some more following the call & in the end I managed to see 2 birds and another was still calling further on , it is very good to get good views of these birds as they are becoming hard to find in Devon , there was also a Garden Warbler singing its head off nearby .
