Recently a new Partridge project launched at the Sculthorpe Moor Reserve.

This educational project is in conjunction with three local primary schools in Norfolk. The project's aim is to spark interest in conservation by providing real life updates from the reserve highlighting the lifecycle of the native Partridge. From egg to chick and eventual release onto our Sculthorpe Reserve, pupils will actively follow the progress of 13 English Partridge eggs. 

Image: The Partridge eggs have recently been placed into an incubator. The progress of the eggs will be monitored and reported to the schools involved with this project.

Image: Candling the eggs. Project coordinator Lilly Dollman checks the embryo in each of the eggs. The blank space you can see beneath the shell is the air sack, also visible are the veins, and the dark area is where the Grey Partridge chick is forming!

Image: The chicks will be right at home in our special Partridge Palace which is situated close to Lilly Dollman’s office space so she can keep a close eye on the Partridge hatchlings.

Once hatched and ready for release the reserve is hoping to invite the children to visit their chicks as they are released onto Sculthorpe’s wildflower meadow. This meadow will provide the perfect habitat for these native birds.
