Stubble Quail and possible King Quail

Post by Mick Atzeni » Fri Jul 13, 2012 9:20 am

Hirstglen farmer and friend, Peter Vernon, rang me on Tuesday to report he'd flushed a small dark quail. He didn't pick up any other markings on it to be sure it was a King Quail but made the comment he didn't expect them there this time of year.

Peter also mentioned there were plenty of Stubble Quail and he'd seen an unfamiliar raptor overhead. It could only have been a White-bellied Sea-Eagle from his description; the first one for his place.

Cheers
Mick
