Turtle doves project finding new food sources

Once widespread in England and Wales, the turtle dove is now in serious decline, with only nine birds for every 100 there were in the 70s.

One cause is the disappearance of their main food source - so a new project is looking for alternative foods and protected feeding areas for the birds.
