Oriental Turtle Dove Refound in Chipping Norton!!!!

The 1st-winter orientalis oriental turtle dove has been refound alive and well in a garden in Chipping Norton. Fortunately it's found it's way to a birder's garden where it has been for three days now. It can only be viewed from within the house itself where it shows down to within a few yards at times.

It's in the garden of 41 The Leys. The road itself is currently closed to traffic at the top end due to road works. Park only in the town centre and walk back to The Leys to view from inside No 41. A queuing system will be in operation, with a charge of £5 per person. Access until 4pm today and 10am-4pm tomorrow and no access on Wednesday or Thursday.

No doubt there will be lots of fantastic photos appearing on the blog over the next few hours but here's some video footage to be getting on with
