Hi
I am wondering if there are any spots in hampshire which reliably get turtle doves. As would love to see one in hampshire.
Thanks

They are still there, but not always reliable. As good a site as any though.

Hi Cameron

Why not try Stockbridge Down? It's a shorter journey from Winchester.

Do a search through goingbirding (Hampshire Bird News) and you will see a few for last year.

Try around Warnford, just east of where you are: Becon Hill and Old Winchester Hill NNR

I tried Martin Down last year but no luck, lovely site though
