Last month I wrote about some of the seedeaters frequenting the Estate, especially the four species of sparrows. This month I am continuing along this theme with a discussion on the Queleas.
The Red–billed Quelea is a common bird on the Estate though their numbers vary during the year. Since 2012, when monthly records of the birds in the Ambers were initiated, Red-billed Quelea have been recorded in every month. There are however fewer summer records than autumn, winter and spring records.
