He just needed to shift to the left a bit LOL.

I think Collared Doves are rather attractive, there's often one about, though not quite all the year. For a few months I may get two and, rarely, more come along; think the record has been four (so far LOL)

I think they're very attractive birds Delia, and this is a fine TTTW close up shot, well done!

Sadly, none here for 3 years (when an evergreen thicket, where they nested, was cut back).
