Wed 26Brown Quail
Inner East Devonport
A single Brown Quail was observed in a disused houseyard between the disused cafe and the "sex-shop" in Thomas St. East Devonport (approximately 100m from the quarantine checkpoint for the Spirit of Tasmania). On inspection, the bird flew from beside the cafe to behind the cafe. Possibly an aviary escapee, but also possibly in transit through what would seem to be unlikely habitat.

Lake Glenmaggie, above weir wall.
Pair, or possibly three observed over the last week feeding on black mullberries. When disturbed they retreat to nearby gullies where they can be heard calling to each other. Clear observation within 10 metres, and then while flying displaying the distinctive crucifix wing formation. Very loud distinctive calls. Further information
