Over the last few days I have seen the turtle doves around. They have been feeding on the back lawn, walking all over the roof of the garage next door, along the fence between us and our neighbours, and fluttering in my climbing rose.
This morning I saw one with a twig in his beak. Mmmmmm................... building a nest! I wonder where.
Earlier this morning I was taking some things to the bin and heard them fluttering again in the climbing rose , so I decided to investigate. Low and behold they are building their nest in amongst all the thorns! I've seen them since with more twigs, jumping from the roof of the garage onto the fence, then into the rose bush. So they have not been deterred by my finding them.
So..... I will watch this space, and try to keep my Fluffball away. She does know that they are there.
