Partridge

I was in the Flora Field yesterday checking the clearing of the wild flower margin when I disturbed three partridge. I am pretty sure I glimpsed red legs – but aren’t ‘ours’ grey partridge?????

Pheasant in the Flora Field this morning whilst we hedge laid in the West Field.

    Hi
    Grey partridge have very noticeable rusty red outer tails, so I expect that’s what you saw rather than their legs. If they flew up from you (as opposed to running away) you’d definitely get the flash of red from these feathers.
    Hope that helps!
