French or Red-Legged Partridge

This morning as we were leaving to do a spot of restocking, the eagle eyed Elizabeth photographed these two specimens of Red-Legged Partridge at the rear of our garden. That small Ixus camera of hers really does well with the optical zoom!

This is the second time we have had Partridge in the garden however last time it was the rarer Grey variety and in October when the hunting season was in full swing. See Here. We thought they had probably come our way to escape the hunters!

These two Red-Legged ones do not have to worry about that until next October... Hopefully.

When we returned later in the morning they were gone but it was nice to have another species to add to our list.

Well captured. That's quite a sight to see in your own garden!
