Thanks for the super quick identification for me a few weeks ago - I have another even poorer quality!

Saw a bird out on our street and couldn't ID it, as I couldn't get to my camera or binos in time. The I discovered that for the previous 40 minutes it had been on our lawn and caught by my security camera. Quality is terrible, but here it is:

The bird was walking quite upright at times, very small tail so we thought couldn't be a pheasant...

Looks like a Partridge to me...............
(I know there are various members of the family, but this looks like the most common one in the UK!)

Don't think so. The colours were wrong and this was bigger than a partridge. (At least, bigger than the ones we had for lunch last weekend)

It's head was quite a pale grey and the back was very reddish brown with lots of large paler feathers.

Saw something similar today in our garden and thought it was a juvenile female pheasant.

Yeah, French Partridge. Quite common around you, but not normally up the high street! Grin

They usually arrive tied together in a brace and as an ex-partridge, bereft of life Wink
