P.S. Has anyone seen Red-Legged Partridges in their area, as I would like to get a copy photo of anyone lucky enough to get a good picture. They are mostly common, I believe, in Yorkshire, Leicestershire, and Suffolk., while "UnCommon"/ Grey Partridges are sadly declining everywhere.

Superb shot Allan

i have seen Red Legged Partridges in Menorca, and Northern Spain. Have you heard their call - it is something else, and will stop you in your tracks if you are lucky to hear them

Regards

Brilliant pic, Penna, though I'm not quite sure why I had to log in to see it. I did have a very close encounter with a partridge once (not sure if it was a red-legged), about 40 years ago now, in Yorkshire near Harrogate. My two young children and self were taking a short-cut crosscountry, and came across a partridge caught in a snare, with a wire around its neck, still alive. I couldn't free it, so picked it up snare and all. We were on our way to the Yorkshire Show, and when we got there I handed it to the RSPCA bloke, who hopefully was able to free and release it. I imagine these snares must be illegal these days, as they caused no end of suffering to all kinds of creatures.

That's funny, Penna, after I finished posting my reply above, lo and behold your partridge pic was there for all to see. When I first clicked on it I must have hit a blip in the system or something.
