Hello and Welcome,

Thank you for your concern over this baby.

Did you happen to see if mom and/or dad was anywhere near? It should be fine if it is flying and safe from predators.

I appreciate you posting and do keep an eye on the baby. If there is any doubt as to its safety please update.

If he's unable to fly, possibly just not old enough and needs a little more 'growing' time, placing him under the bushes isn't going to keep him safe from predators, as he will not be able to escape.

maybe it was learning to fly,they can become disorientated when 1st flying,if hes there and distressed,i understand you cant keep him,,get in touch with MIDDLEBANK RESCUE CENTRE,they can advise you on the dove and if hes injured they can sort him out and rehab him,ill follow with number
