No! I didn't exactly hurtle to the Turtle as family commitments dictated I could not get across to Denchworth until about 8.00 pm which I consequently did. This bird had been reported by RBA and Oxford Blogged by the bold Badger and on getting out of the car I could hear it turtling away at the top of an oak tree. I managed to get a few distant snaps before it flew to another part of the village. This is a most gratifying sighting after the loss of the Buscot Turtle Dove that has not been seen or heard this year after some five years of making Buscot its summer home.
