We’ve already lost more than 95% of our turtle doves!
For many people, the gentle purring call of turtle doves signals the arrival of spring. This is when these birds complete their 3,000 mile journey and arrive in Britain to breed after spending their winter in West Africa.
Sadly, their future in the UK is not looking rosy. Changes in farming have left turtle doves struggling to find enough food to raise healthy chicks.
Imagine that you are a turtle dove. You've arrived in the UK, hungry and exhausted after your epic journey from Africa. The breeding season is rapidly approaching and you need to build up your strength quickly. You search desperately for the small weed-seeds that you need to eat but find yourself surrounded by swathes of oilseed rape and cereal fields.
Extensive farming practise means that there are now fewer overgrown field margins rich with the seed-bearing plants such as fumitory, that you so desperately need.
You have to make a choice: do you stay where you are in the hope that you will be able to glean enough sustenance from the little that you have or do you move on in the hope that you will find something better, if there is anything to be found? Either way, the decision is a hard one for our friend the turtle dove.
Since 1970 we've lost 95% of our turtle doves.
The money from this pressie that protects will go directly to support our huge, international project to save them: Operation Turtle Dove.
A little something for you,
a whole lot for nature.
