Two Turtle Doves
Two visiting Turtle doves perched in a hawthorn bush who have survived their migratory journey to spend the summer in the English countryside.
The Turtle Dove is now the
UK’s fastest declining breed of bird. Between 1995 and 2004 the number
of breeding turtle doves in the UK fell by 93%. This print is featured in a new book called “When Turtle Doves Fly” produced in conjunction with Operation Turtle dove (a branch of the RSPB dedicated to saving Turtle Doves from extinction)
