We are very excited that our first grey partridge release pen is now in place! Based on a farm in Norfolk, these lucky partridges will be released into 17 acres of organic, unsprayed meadowland, which backs on to cornfields and woodland. Notice how brilliantly camouflaged they are in their natural habitat – clever Mother Nature! The waiting game has begun. We now need their calls to entice in a mature, wild grey partridge or barren pair. They will bond with the juveniles and want to adopt them. Once this has happened, our youngsters can be set free to learn the ways of the wild. Watch this space! Our thanks again to all the schools who participated in this wonderful project this year.
