Yesterday I made the claim that the yesterdays Oriental Turtle Dove was different to the Shetland bird. This was based on comparison of different photos, where the Shetland bird appeared much more worn and dull.
Hugh Harrop contacted me this morning. He has been comparing the pictures more thoroughly and reached the conclusion that the bird on the Faroes is in deed the Shetland bird.
The pictures I used for comparison showed a soaking wet bird, which made the bird appear very differently than when it was dry like yesterday.
Thanks to Hugh for adding this new angle to the story.
