Yesterday mid-afternoon I spotted a lone Stock Dove in my back garden along with a couple of Collared Doves.

This is a first time sighting for me so takes my grand total of species in my back garden to 31, this is not a lot I guess but slowly growing over time and increased levels of observation and also getting my wife to look more too 🙂

Tried to get a photo of the healthy looking bird but as soon as it saw me creeping slowly into my conservatory then off it went never to be seen again 🙁
