The Partridges have been released into their next stage of life on the Sculthorpe Reserve!

Lilly Dollman Project Co-Ordinator releases the Partridges into their new meadow pen.

The native species of English Partridge have been relocated from ‘Partridge Palace’ (pictured below) to a new purpose-built pen on the reserve.
