Collared Dove

Easily identified by its fawn colouration with brown flight feathers, it has a narrow black collar around the nape but which is absent in juvenile birds. The Collared Dove has only been breeding in Britain since 1955 where it had spread its range from the Balkans. It can now be found throughout the country except in very hilly areas and is especially associated with gardens in towns and villages.

Like the Woodpigeon it will often associate with Feral Pigeons exploiting agricultural crops and human food scraps. Haith's Wild Bird Food and Premium Wild Bird Food which contain split grain and smaller seeds are eagerly taken if spread on the ground but Collared Doves will also feed from an open-topped bird table.
