Quail Birds are most commonly bred as a captive bird today for the production of their tiny, but desirable, eggs. However, they do still roam in the wild and it is Britain's smallest game bird. Its main natural habitats are Dorset and Wiltshire, although in good years they can be found in the Welsh Marches and East Anglia. They are very difficult to see, due to their shy nature and good camouflage, so are more likely to be heard by their distinctive call, usually from long grass or cereal fields.
