Isombridge - Grey Partridge and Co!

A final hour of daylight spent in this haven of agricultural 'good practice' was spent with Grey Partridge in mind. There were other species occupying this niche to enjoy!

Like this smart male Yellow Wagtail...

Or several Corn Bunting! In fact, with the car window open, it was rare not to hear them every 100m or so!

Belting out the familiar burst of song...

But finally, the object of my desire... keeping a weather eye on a good year to keep a yearlist tempts you to do this :-) Grey Partridge aren't that easy nowadays!

Wait a minute, we have a pair!

Showing nicely despite the evening gloom..

All this with a couple of miles of urban Telford!
