We have lost 96% of our turtle doves since 1970 and numbers are still in freefall. Their population decline is so dramatic that the species could be lost as a breeding bird in our country within the next few decades. But all is not lost. There is still time to save the gentle purr of singing males from disappearing from our countryside’s musical repertoire – but only if we act now.
