Another bump of this thread!

As expected for some time now, the Andalusian Buttonquail is officially declared extinct in Spain by the Central Government.

According to Spanish law, this will open the doors to the reintroduction of the species (of course, everything depends on the status of the Moroccan population).

Hello. This message tries to thank James Lowther, John Cantelo and RGoater, and all those who showed interest in the current status of the Andalucian Hemipode.
If it is of some interest, there is a series of articles in a generalist nature conservation magazine in Spain. It is called Revista Quercus, and you can find it on In the "Observatorio" section from magazine number 388 (June2018) to the present issue, number 394( Dec 2018 ), you will find a monthly article titled "OPERACIÓN TORILLO".
Torillo is the spanish word for Turnix sylvatica. The series of articles depicts the adventures of five fanatic, in the noble sense of the term, researchers in the quest of this rare bird in the Atlantic district of Morocco. It has lots of colourful descriptions of the people and landscapes of this region.
In addition, they have organized a conference about this trip, which took place in the spanish museum of natural sciences, on November, the 6th. You could find a piece of news related to all this trip in the 393 issue of the revista Quercus ( Nov 2018 ). You can find it there, with the key words " OPERACIÓN TORILLO ".
Hope this could help, Blanca and Paco.
