In the garden,

View from a window of a Collared Dove.

A small pigeon found on farmland and in woodland, parks and gardens across the UK they 1st bred in the 1950s, since their numbers have increased and the collared dove is now one of our most familiar garden birds. Collared doves feed on seeds and grain on the ground and are usually seen singularly or in pairs, although small flocks may form where there is enough food. The RSPB records there are now breeding:810,000 pairs across the UK.
