The Quail, first heard mid-afternoon on Tuesday, was joined later that evening by up to three other birds (Tim & Dawn and Lee)! My guess is that these were probably reasonably local breeding birds, disturbed by the nearby harvesting activity. One bird was still present and calling, between the set-aside and adjacent cereal field, yesterday morning. I’ve heard no over-night reports and there was no sign or sound this morning – they may have moved on. Speaking of moving on, I saw two Swifts over The Street yesterday, but they too seem to have gone – the last of our resident breeding birds?
