Common Quail still singing today in the barley field outside my garden.Two days ago I was standing in my garden and a Red Legged Partridge shot out of the crop closely followed by the Quail - there must have been a predator around but it provided me with unexpected views so I'm not complaining. Also another garden 'Tick' for us today a Tree Pipit singing all morning.

Quail (again). Distinctive calls of what I think were at least 3 calling Quail from meadow field adjacent to River Usk at Llanhamlach near Brecon (opposite side to Old Ford Inn). Why are there suddenly so many reports of Quail? I remember about 10 years ago, a young boy living in Llanhamlach keeping Quail as pets. Could these be connected or has there been influx of migratory Quail.

Why did the Quail run across the road ? Because it was scared of the big chicken.
