On behalf of Peter who sent in an email:-

Found at roadside, very wet and seems stunned, looks like a small dove / pigeon, only the size of a black bird. Does anyone have a name for it? 

Have put it in the dry with some seed and water, hope it will come round and fly off soon

That looks like a juvenile Collared Dove, Peter. I cannot enlarge your very clear photo but that beak looks very like their odd shaped beak. If you do a search for a photo of a juvenile Collared dove on the internet you can check the beak out. It may be a fledgling blown out the nest.
