Wed 7th Oct Atherington - Climping
I flushed a small bird from the long grass of the right hand field off bread lane this morning. It was no more than about 12 feet away at the closet and dived over the rife giving a weak single call, I though at the time a possible Quail. Checking the area and walking the over side of the rife I came across the decapitated remains of a corpse, pictures attached below, hope it will not put you off your dinner.
