Hi Rod,
Good description. Here is the text from the GBS report as to what it is (page 55): "The exotic Barbary Dove Streptopelia risoria, which is also a common aviary bird, was also recorded as one escaped bird." So now we have another record (though not a GBS obs). Definitely NOT a very young Spotted Turtle-Dove.
