Turtle Dove NO! but twice this year I have heard similar purring resembling one. Back in the winter I heard one which then changed to the usual woodpigeon song and today by the Cathedral I heard a snippet of the song but then it changed to clicking sounds like someone winding a large clock. I didn't see the bird despite listening for 4 minutes but concluded it must have been a jay and they have been heard and seen in the wood this spring.
