Also at least 2 SpHawk chicks about to fledge from a nest, raucous when the adult male showed up, the female juv getting brave and 'branched' towards him. Two Dark Green Fritillaries by the river.

The Quail was also singing every day up to the 25/07/19, (Harvesting day), from below my house in the 'winter barley'. It must have been ranging between the two locations every day. Also displaced from the winter barley during the harvesting were double figures of young Pheasants which were non flyers and they were panicking and running around everywhere including my garden. I'm glad 'Quentin the Quail' is OK we've become quite attached to him!

Quail singing still at Ed's grid ref, 12noon today. Must be breaking the long-staying county record now, calling for 2months+. On the harvested barley stubble in next field, 55 Woodpigeon and 2 Buzzards, one with a very prominent white rump seen in flight.
