Red-legged Partridge

Partridges are medium-sized non-migratory birds, intermediate between the larger Pheasants and the smaller Quail, with a wide native distribution throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa. Species like the Grey and Red-Legged Partridge are extremely popular amongst travelling guns, and this has seen them being introduced into large areas of North America. The birds have thrived, especially in Spain and Portugal in Europe. Given their proximity to North Africa, the landscape and climate are dry and hot, making it ideal for the Partridge’s breeding and development.

The most popular and abundant is probably the Red-Legged Partridge. This pretty little bird is sandy brown in colouration with black and brown barring down its wings. It also features a ‘black necklace’ which refers to the dark band around its neck. They grow around 30cm to 35cm, with a wingspan of 47cm to 50cm and weigh anywhere between 18oz and 20oz.

Partridge shooting is one of the most exciting and exhilarating of game bird pursuits. With its deceiving wing beat, the ability to fly up to speeds of 35 miles per hour, and its exceptional skill in hugging the landscape, the Partridge is a very challenging quarry to shoot. In some cases, the Partridges will present themselves at high altitude, the next close to the ground, others bursting the gate, always finding ways to test the attention and speed of the hunter.
