I never go anywhere without a camera. My mobile phone is capable of taking very good pictures but most times I prefer to use a 'Proper' camera. I have a selection of three that I use, nothing super expensive; a compact with a short zoom; a DSLR with lenses up to 300mm and a bridge camera with a zoom up to 1000mm.
Hardly a day goes by when I don't find something to 'snap' and as a consequence I have tens of thousands of pictures in my digital library.
Yesterday afternoon I was sitting out on the patio in the warm sun, camera to hand, hoping that some interesting birds would visit my bird feeding station.

I think the birds must have all gone on holiday because there were only a few around. No wrens, no bluetits or great tits, no chaffinch or siskin. Just house sparrows, new robins, collared doves and wood pigeons. As I have said, seldom a day passes when I don't get a snap so I just kept a few to include here.

Perhaps many have found a garden with a better larder

Quite like the photo of your collared dove. Has a lovely colour to it. The pair of sparrows is a good one too.
