Collared doves came to the UK from Asia. In the 1950’s there were no recorded sightings but today they are a common garden bird throughout the country. These doves are not overly shy and will often take food from your hand (as well as seed feeders and bird tables). This one and it’s mate live near my garden and visit several times a day. When the sunflower seeds run out the doves sit just outside the window willing me to replenish supplies. If they could tap on the glass I’m sure they would!
