Another pic from our trip to RSPB Lochwinnoch.
A collared dove
"Chances are, if you are reading this in the British Isles, you are within a mile or less of a collared dove. Yet, just 40 years ago, the closest individual would have been no nearer than France, Holland or Denmark. Until 1953, the species had never even been seen in Britain.
These are small doves of about 28cm with pale pinkish or grey-brown feathers. They have a black half-collar, black primary feathers and a long, white-edged tail."
PP - cropped, sharpened, colours adjusted and resized for TL. Also ran through Neat Image to remove noise. Pic is slightly over-exposed in places.
Thanks for looking

pretty decent shot of this shy bird, good colours and details, as mentioned it is a touch oe, especially on the birds neck. maybe adjusting the exposure prior to shooting might help this problem.
ps, i attempted a small ws, hope this is agreeable.
