    A night on the tiles.

    Just goes to prove that you're never too old to learn. I had always thought that partridges always jugged on the ground but it appears not to be true. We have been feeding this cock and two hen "frenchies" for a couple of years but never seen any chicks. But we noticed them going up on a shed roof lately and so I put a camera on them last night and this is the result. Take notice of the times. Viewing is easier if you right click on each image and take the "open link in new tab" option then you can open up as many as you like and still come back to this page. I can only post 8 images per post using this site and so the continuation will be in the nest post.

    Surprised they chose some where as exposed as that.

    I think if they were here the hawks would have them in a rattle. We are constantly restocking with pigeons, and there are far fewer small birds now.

    We've got buzzards and ravens in a wood 200 yards away. They would have any chicks which is perhaps why we haven't seen any for years but would they have the adults ?
