What a fine cycle home that was. A pair of TURTLE DOVE (my biggest flock this year) at the end of Tempsford Aerodrome, two Corn Buntings, a reeling Grasshopper Warbler and purring Turtle Dove (by Woodbury Lodge Farm) and a blooming singing QUAIL just west of Woodbury Low Farm.

Likely a second Quail near Tetworth Lakes or possibly the other one carrying that far?
