Southill QUAIL present for second day

I heard the Quail again distantly from my garden at 9.15pm so I picked up Tony Squires and Gary Dilly and we walked round a few fields. We heard the bird a few more times between 9.30 and 10.15pm, always distant and never singing for long. It was in the field south of the road that heads west towards Ireland from the Southill-Stanford road. It might be audible from the beer garden of the Green Man in Stanford! Certainly further away than last night and it seemed to be moving all the time tonight (Paul Donald)
