When I started birding in the 1970s Turtle Doves were still common; now they're fast becoming a rarity. Changing farming practices are partly to blame, but it doesn't help that so many thousands are still being shot or trapped in North Africa and around the Mediterranean every spring. They are still hanging on in small numbers here in Norfolk, but for how much longer? This painting is currently unframed.
