The Turtle that Purrs

Having already seen a Rufous Turtle Dove this year it would have been a bit lapse of me not to see a European Turtle Dove. So as I was working in Wootton today I stopped at Stewartby Lake this morning.
 Sure enough before I had even parked the car I could see the bird I was looking for.

 I managed to park almost underneath it and take a few photos while it sat there quite contented uttering it's quite distinct 'purring' call.
