Amberley Wildbrooks

With the weather not really knowing what it was doing this morning I ummed and aahed about whether to go birding. I'm very pleased I did, because as I approached Middle Gutter at Amberley the distinctive sound of a singing Quail could be heard. The first time I heard it I wasn't totally convinced I hadn't misheard a Skylark or Meadow Pipit or one of the many other birds singing; it was pretty windy and there was a lot of backgroud noise. However, once I heard it a second time I had no doubts. A fantastic record for Amberley. According to BirdGuides the last record for Amberley Wildbrooks was 5th July 2016. Other than that it was fairly quiet with only 35 species on the list, including 2 House Martins and 3 Swifts near the village. No Willow Warblers, Nightingale or Lesser Whitethroat heard.
