    wild English partridge

    I have been seeing decent numbers of wild birds this year whilst harvesting, but to my surprise i am seeing good numbers of wild English partridge. Anyone else have an increase in their areas?
    Hunted - England, Scotland, Poland, South Africa and Spain.

    We too have a good number of wild english partridge on the shoot this year. I have also seen a good number of pheasant poults and even some young french partridge.

    I think alot of people thought it was going to be a poor year because of the wet weather we had but things are looking good.
    If at first you don't succeed, reload

    Good numbers in Moray & Banffshire this year reported (saw a young brood 2 weeks ago), I guess the weather must have turned better after the grouse hatch but was still pretty wet mid June (although warmer) - 2nd hatch prevelant I suspect.

    Three barren pairs and a single cock bird so far, so looking very poor here. We had a good stock this spring so were hoping for a good season this time around, one when we might even shoot a few. Not to be though from what we have seen so far.
