Red-legged Partridge (Naas Lane, Lydney)

Today was showery, not very nice. I went out anyway, and I didn't expect anything. But I caught a Partridge, and he was very close. I was in my car, stopped, and ready for shooting.

  1. Bob, when he blinked, it was like 'Wow!' So, I think you see things most people don't even notice...and they are incredible, and you 'catch' them for us, and I always think WOW! That's a great artist...

  26. I love them! We have them here too - they are called: choglot. We see them often on our outings, but we never managed to get a decent photo. You Bob, of course did!!! That one feels quite content and not at all disturbed by you, closing and opening its eyes calmly!
    Thank you once again for spoiling us with your wonderful pictures! :-)
