New Year's Eve, afternoon, and I was idly watching a Speckled Warbler
through a window on the opposite side of the house to where I'm usually
birding from. As it picked its way to and fro through the litter a small
pump shape dropped in almost next to it. A quail, but tiny, barely bigger
than the Speckled Warbler. Little Button-quail! Just the one.

Next morning, Eileen flushed the same bird three of four times on a short
walk in the same general area, each time it gave a few little squeaky
squeals and fluttered not too far away before dropping back into the

Bird 206 for the Abberton list. And it's got onto the 2005 and 2006 lists!
