An easily-identifiable call which we hear all year-round, the Partridge here is regularly hunted for the pot, but seems to survive nonetheless. The deep gobbling cry of ‘chuk-uk-ar’ comes from all sides of the valley, this bird breeds on ground with aromatic shrubs and bare stony ground. So our secret valley is the perfect habitat. We hear them more often than we see them, when we do spot one they are beautifully-coloured with a pinkish legs, bright red bill, white chin and black/brown/blue-grey barred flanks.To hear the call of the Red-legged Partridge and to read more about this colourful bird, click here for the RSPB.
