10th July 2009

Having noticed that a good number of Quail have been observed in Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Staffordshire this year, I decided to have a late afternoon cycle around Earlswood, taking in as many of the area's arable fields as I could in the 70 or so minutes I had available. No Quail was heard, but I hope to have another cycle around in case one visits (one did visit nearby Blythe Valley Park for two days in 2004 so it's not impossible!).

Today's best sighting was outside Earlswood in my village, namely a partially leucistic Jackdaw (most of white on primaries) amongst a flock of 220+ of the species.
