Mega-rare bird visits Rum - October 2013

28-10-2013

A Mourning Dove has been found on the island in a garden in Kinloch, on the Isle of Rum. In the birding world this is described as a mega rarity as there are only three previously accepted records in Britain. The Mourning Dove is a North American species and has probably been blown off course by the recent strong westerly winds while trying to migrate south in the Americas.

Many thanks to Sean Morris for the picture. Image © Sean Morris
