South Shields Pier

I think this is the carcass of a Quail. Looking at reports a few were arriving on the coast this week. So possibly fresh in and killed by the local Peregrine. (All assumptions!)

Then this tame Budgerigar was on the Pier also, and made me think. This obviously was an escape but I do recall that people with aviaries often have Quail in the aviaries to clean up the discarded seed etc. Perhaps both escaped from the same aviary.

Guess I'll never know.

One of a few Large Skippers outside the North Marine Park.
