Partridge Cock

Sometimes a great picture just falls into your lap.

Sometimes a great picture just falls into your lap.

Just wanted to post this photograph of one of my escaped partridge cocks which jumped up on the dyke behind my office in the evening sun a few minutes ago. My breeding stock wintered well, but when a few birds escaped last month, a sparrowhawk took great relish in killing all the hens but one. The single pair that remains will produce eggs this coming spring, but the bulk of my eggs will come from elsewhere.

A beautiful bird on a stunning evening.
