French Partridges along with Pheasants are the UK’s most hunted birds with the season commencing of September 1st through to 1st February.

The Red-Legged Partridge is not native to Britain and was introduced from Continental Europe around 1770. The Red- Legged Partridge are larger than our native English grey Partridge, it has a white chin and throat patch bordered with black. It has a greyish body with bold black flank stripes and a chestnut-sided tail. Partridges are commonly found on lowland farmland in open areas and are traditionally flushed from hedges and cover crops. In flight partridges are very agile and with their rapid wing beat give the impression that they fly a lot faster than the Pheasant.
