Car­olling birds

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - NATURE -

Par­tridges are an­other bird linked to the sea­son, thanks to the carol The Twelve Days of Christ­mas. The same carol has also brought tur­tle doves into Yule­tide tra­di­tion. Sadly, the beloved Bri­tish tur­tle dove is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly rare as their habi­tat is lost to in­ten­sive farm­ing. Visit op­er­a­tiontur­tle­dove.org

✿ Did you know… Tur­tle doves are only present in Bri­tain be­tween April and Septem­ber.
