The last few years have been good for Quail in Cheshire with at least a couple of singing birds being located. This year is no exception and thanks to excellent directions from my mate Pod I arrived at a weed filled field of maize near Farndon after taking the scenic route home from Birmingham. Forty minutes later I was rewarded with not one but two singing Quail! I managed to get a sound recording on the mobile but can't upload sound clips here yet!

Nothing much else to report since the weekend although Groucho's simple I.D guide to rare birds in the NW has a new addition with a nice diagnostic mock up of Terek Sandpiper showing the key identification features.
