Turtle Doves in the Howardian Hills

The beautiful Turtle Dove is our smallest European dove. This tiny power house of a bird flies 11,200 km to reach the Howardian Hills from Mali in Africa each spring.  Unfortunately Turtle Doves are in big trouble. Find out more about these extraordinary birds and how you could help their conservation here.
