May 2019 – Wildlife Conservation: Our first grey partridge eggs arrive!

There was much eggcitement at our London and East branch today, when our first grey partridge eggs arrived! These beautiful little eggs really are tiny – we’ve photographed one next to some coins to give you an idea of scale.

They will soon be going out to schools across London and the Eastern region of the country, where they will hatch. The chicks will then return to our branch farm where they will be grown on until it is time to release them into the wild in the autumn.
