I'm not sure that I have enough information for anyone to be able to assist, but here goes anyway ...
At Mulligan's today I had a very brief view of a bird. I was watching something else and as I started to move a bird flew from the ground, no more than a few metres from my feet, hidden by the mid- height grass. It flew very low above the ground and landed on the ground again 50-75 m away, but was lost to my line of sight. All I observed was that the bird was about the size of a starling, appeared dark in colour from the rear, short tail, rapid wing movement and it look stocky in build. It didn't call as it flew.
I don't have much idea of what it was. I thought of brown quail, but have never seen one in flight, so don't know if that's a possibility. No photos ...
Any suggestions? I was in the middle of the reserve - not very close to any of the dams.
