No sorry I did not see one. If only. I look and look but have never spotted one and sightings reported through the bird list I am on, are precious few.

But never fear, if shooting the blighters is your thing, you can take 20 a day, during the upcoming quail shooting season in Victoria, that starts in April.

On the other hand, if you know where there are quail in abundance, I'd really like to know, so I can look into booking an eco holiday to see them. I tried googling 'problem quail' and 'plague quail' to see if I can find where they are so plentiful that they can be taken as a sport but all I got were biblical references and advice for pet quail ailments. Surely quail hunting is only with us, as an accident of history? Last time I checked my watch I wasn't in Europe in the Middle Ages. 

Anyhow I am not going to jump up and down about this one. I have a pressing need to pay attention to applied linguistics in any spare moments so this blog may slide into recess...
