Maidenhead. Reported to me by Mrs Dawn Gray in the Pinkneys Green area, who assures me she knows the difference to her regular Collared Doves. I am aware that it is an early date for Berks, but as three other UK sites have had them this week I thought I'd put it on so other birders in that area can keep an ear open.
