Red-legged Partridge - Beeley Moor

It's not just the Curlew and Snipe that have taken to sitting on the stone walls. This Red-legged Partridge may also have been watching over its brood, although I never saw them. The Red-legged Partridge is seen regularly around the moors but its native cousin the Grey appears to have all but disappeared although Ken did see one about a month back around Alicehead so there could still be a small population in the area.
