Have you seen a turtle dove recently?
We’d love to hear about turtle doves you have seen or heard. An easy way for you to record your turtle dove sightings is via the BirdTrack website. All sightings will enable us to build up a clearer picture of their distribution in the UK and allow us to target our efforts.
Follow us on Twitter @SaveTurtleDoves and join in the conversation about turtle doves by sending us your stories and pictures.
You can also get in touch with us via the Contact Page.
You can make a donation to Operation Turtle Dove to help fund the research and on-the-ground advisory activity. The research is looking into the breeding habitat of the turtle dove – what nesting materials and food sources they require to successfully breed. Researchers are also monitoring the migration patterns of the birds.
Help farmers to put the habitats that turtle doves thrive on back onto UK farmland by choosing products that are Conservation Grade accredited – they are the ones sold under the ‘Fair to Nature’ banner and have the distinctive ‘bee’ logo on the packaging.
You can support the RSPB’s work to save turtle doves by buying products from the RSPB. From gifts and home-ware to bird food and binoculars, 100% of profits go towards vital work to save threatened wildlife.
