Ghost Dove

We have a number of collared doves that we see regularly in the garden and about Scalloway. This morning as I was sat on the sofa a loud bang gave me a good gluff and I saw one of them had crashed into the window leaving it's mark...

... a ghostly print of it's body, head and tail along with the graceful curve of the leading edge of it's wing and on the upper wing it's primary feather tips.

Pretty cool and pretty spooky. The dove seemed to fly away unharmed, but I guess we should wash the windows now!
