I was sitting in my back garden watching a juvenile dunnock foraging
amongst the vegetables when it decided to fly into my kitchen .It was
safely caught and released. A quarter of an hour later it was back amongst
the vegetables .

Yes, quite normal for Collared Doves to start this early. Am always interested in nests built on structures such as satellite dishes, security lights (it would be illegal to disturb them once they were sitting). They are liable to get predated by crows and magpies though.

We had a pair prospecting for nest sites in the gardens at the back of our's yesterday [they like next doors security light bracket but I have a nasty feeling last year when they'd started building the start of the nest was removed disbelief.gif]. I guess they start early?
