A Quail was singing on the Great orme this morning for an hour or so, in bracken above the cemetery and below the car park. This is the first site record as far as I'm aware. At one stage (when Pete Alderson and John Roberts had arrived) the bird seemed to call from just feet away! Unfortunately it wasn't seen. The picture below shows the sonogram and the link above the recording
The Quail song can be seen at 0.5 and again at 1.5 and around 4.5, 5.5 and 6.5 second onwards and show as a triple call between 1.5 and 5.5 kHz and a grnt at around 3.5 seconds. Ignire the chaffinch from 3.5-5.5 seconds.
