The classic carol "Twelve Days Of Christmas" features turtle doves and partridges - but these birds could be facing a wildlife disaster according to conservationists.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds says numbers of the festive birds have been going down massively.

The turtle dove is now the most endangered farm bird in the United Kingdom.

Ricky visited a farm to investigate.
