Not a mutant nor a ninja

but definately a Turtle Dove. No 265 on my life list and a great pleasure to observe. I was out with PJA and we had seen loads of Barnacle Geese flying North, flocks of Golden Plover at St Marys, Wheatear at Briar Dene, dipped yet again on the Yellow browed Warbler at Tynemouth and just photographed the Mandarin Duck at Tynemouth when the shout came through.

In flight comparison of size between Turtle and Collared. Thanks to AJ and the Big Waters crew for getting the news out.
