QUAILS at Ickleford

I received a telephone call from my wife at lunchtime to say that she had found 2 calling COMMON QUAILS in a barley field at Ickleford. Unfortunately I have not been near to a computer until now so hence the late report. I visited the location this evening and managed to hear 1 in slightly windy conditions. They are in the barley fields just south of Pound Farm, Ickleford. I walked the bridleway just south of the farm, which is off the A600. Last heard in the 2nd field on the left of the bridleway at TL17131 31426 (Chris Beach)
