Below the area into which the Collared Dove below was taking twigs I found the remains of the first breeding attempt this morning.
The dint on the base of the egg suggests the egg has fallen or been dropped out of the nest and the presence of yolk that it has been predated. Never fear though, this pair did exactly the same last year although the single egg they laid was left to go cold after which they produced three broods of two with at least three surviving to fledge.
