... for anyone wondering what TTTW means! ;)

I'd not seen any Collared Doves for a while and this was only the second I'd managed to photograph this year.

Does he look a strange angle to you... well he's half-way up the steep bank to the feeders, it's not high, but almost vertical. I really have to pick my route to get there and be really careful when it's wet/icy.

As I said earlier ... TTTW

A wonderful top view you have of this dove, and colourfully captured, Delia. A brilliant close up, well done.

That is interesting D, the numbers at our feeders have really dropped this year compared to a few years past. TFS this beauty with us!
