Boogie Nights......

This evening myself, Dan and Guy all rendezvoused near the Wildfowlers’ Pool. Dan had suggested the idea in the hope of hearing Quail.

There was plenty of flying things that none of us could identify, bats, the track being a brilliant tunnel for them. Robins catching moths, LRP, Grey Partridge and pheasants all calling and party revellers near the walled meadow, but no Quail heard. Dan and I then went to Freeman's Pool and heard Grasshopper Warbler; we went onto the old field part and had a fantastic singing display. I have heard these birds in the daytime, but their night time song is amazing, really loud, it just kept going on for minutes at a time.
