Meet Myrtle the turtle dove

One of Titan’s successors, Bird 161004, has a new name! He will from now on be known as Myrtle. Myrtle was the most popular name in the naming competition run by RSPB Science. Thank you to Claire Wilson, Anne Tomma, Howard Bayley, Jez Elkin, Hannah Gumbrell, Katy Spedding, Halina Morton, Susanna Allen, Ella Wooley, Julie Kimber, and photo_cj for suggesting this name, and to everyone else who voted. You can follow Myrtle’s progress #Myrtle on Twitter @Natures_Voice.

Good luck Myrtle!
