A DOVE which has got the blues is baffling and amazing birdwatchers in Nympsfield.

The blue dove has become quite the celebrity at its home at holiday lets Nympsfield Barn Cottage’s.

Guests could not believe their eyes when they saw the 80% blue coloured dove, which has been living circulating for several months at the holiday cottages in Front Street, Nympsfield.

Jonathan Gazzard, owner of Barn Cottages, said: “None of us have seen anything like it, we cannot believe it.”

However SNJ reader Sarah Phaedre Watson appears to have solved the mystery of the dove from above. She posted on Facebook that people who own doves can sometimes add dye to their food to make the doves more identifiable to bird feeders.
