|Red legged partridges in the back garden|
Slowly but surely the bird count at our new QTH is creeping up, although we see fewer small birds than at the old QTH on the village edge. This is a bit puzzling as we have plenty of trees, orchards and shrubs around and we put nuts out in the feeders. We do have a pair of red legged partridges that come in the garden most days. They seem to live in the close.
All my antennas (40m-70cm) are at one end of the garden and don’t spoil the garden view at all.
Roger. We live close to a farmer who breeds these partridges for shooting parties on his land in the season. Whenever a shoot takes place to avoid it I find some of them hiding in my back garden. Ian
