Actually it was you who gave me the clue...Ground Dove. I just checked what ground doves the Newquay zoo has and matched this picture (the first one now is a beauty!) with the photos on Wikipedia; the Cinnamon Ground Dove picture matched. :)

Just found two more pictures so added the name and rearranged the order.

Thanks, Sukanya, I would agree with you, I do not have a book covering Indonesia and New Guinea and my visits to Sumatra and Java did not include any birding and were 35-45 years ago! Did not photo all the data sheets in the zoo and have not got around to the pictures from a second visit a couple of days later as the grandchildren requested to go again.

Looks a bit like cinnamon ground dove (Gallicolumba rufigula) to my eyes.
