The Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) is a small dove with a long tail and is known to be smaller than a Woodpigeon. They are easily identified with its pinky-brown grey colour, and a narrow black collar (as the name suggests).
If you’re out and about bird watching we have these delightful birds for you to try and look out for:
The Skylark (Alauda arvensis) is a small brown bird and is a member of the Lark family. It is a streaky brown colour with a small crest, the tail is white-sided and the wings also have a rear white edge that is visible in flight.
Blackbirds are one of Britain’s most familiar and best-loved birds. Belonging to the thrush family, only the male is all black with female and young Blackbirds being brown.
With winter almost upon us, garden birds need our help and we have some energy busting seeds and mixes that will help them thrive during even the coldest of months.
