California Quail in UK (1 Viewer)


Hi all, newbie here. I have just seen and photographed a California Quail on my bird table near Bath, UK. Is this very unusual?

Cool! It will have escaped from an aviary somewhere, but it must have been a nice surprise!

Just checked recent Avon Bird Reports. A female California Quail was reported at High Littleton (12km SW of Bath) on 12 Jun 2010. Someone local seems to be losing them!


Thanks guys, what a nice bunch you are! I will indeed look after the Quail - if it returns to any of my bird tables, I will keep you posted. I took several pictures, all similar but if anyone wants to see the rest just let me know. Best wishes to you all. Su x
