Oops I didn't see that the previous sighting date was the 18/07/19 - obviously the bird heard was when it was in the original barley field. It may have flown to the adjacent spring barley field now - worth a Listen!

With regard to the previous post on the Quail singing - the Quail that had been singing from the winter barley field below my house for the last two months was displaced yesterday during the harvesting of the crop. I hoped it would fly to another crop field locally and this report probably confirms it - I'm pleased that he's found new accommodation.

Often the case - you go for a target species, or on a hunch for a new find, and something else of equal interest shows up! Checked the river at Pencelli last evening - and heard a Little Owl. Then pieced it all together. The last record from the Manest - Scethrog barns territory nearby was 8 years ago, 2011 so thought they had died out like so many Little Owls in Wales. Takes me back 25-30 years when LO were reasonably well-spaced down the Usk valley between Sennybridge and Glangrwyney, as most I found then were initially heard in hot weather in the 2nd half of July. Funny that...
