Population trends for Turtle Dove in the UK and England 2023
This spreadsheet presents indices of Turtle Dove population trends in England and in the UK, showing change in population between 1994 and 2023.
The statistics are based on data gathered through the BTO/RSPB/JNCC Breeding Bird Survey (BBS), which is a long-term citizen science monitoring scheme involving annual sampling at thousands of sites across the UK. The BBS reports population trends annually for over 100 UK breeding bird species, and is usually published in Spring.
Trends are presented for the UK, England, and (where possible) English regions. Trends are reported for the duration of the BBS (1994–2023), and for more recent shorter time periods (1-year, 5-year, and 10-year).
