Rufous Turtle Dove ssp. orientalis
An early start for the dove this morning and enjoyed cracking views of it as it moved between several gardens in The Leys. Also present; Bullfinch, Brambling, Blackcap, Siskin, Goldfinch. I then left the site when it started to get elusive at 9.45am
Next stop was nearby Rushy Common which held the drake American Wigeon and 2 Smew (both fem). Finally on the way home 42 Red Kites counted along the M40 with one group totalling 31 birds!
