Dove Step 2

19 Apr 2015
Dove Step 2

In 2014, Dove Step saw a small but perfectly-formed team of dedicated conservationists walk 300 miles through the UK summer range of Turtle Dove. To further raise awareness of and funds for the conservation of this rapidly declining species, the team have upped the ante this year! Starting later this week, they will cover 700 miles of our Turtle Doves' migration route to and through France in just a fortnight, by kayak, bike and on foot: Dove Step 2.

All Turtle Dove sightings logged in BirdTrack are supplied to the Operation Turtle Dove team to help inform conservation action for this declining species.
