Scilly day 10 - Turtle Dove

It was quite a disappointment to finally catch up with this Turtle Dove which has been doing the roof top and back alleys of Hugh Town. In fact, looking more like a 'down and out' than the pristine smart Dove I'm used to (or used to be - locally!)....

In fact the closer it came, the dishevelled it looked!

You can clearly see a tick above the bill here!

Almost looks presentable here, so if you want to enjoy it, keep your distance!
