Partridge in my Garden

The alternate dark clouds and sunshine led me to contemplate the feasibility of putting washing out to dry before I went out for a walk. I read a book as I contemplated my decision and was disturbed by an occasional tapping on the window (behind where I was sitting). I eventually turned around to see a sparrow sitting on the window ledge capturing insects with several other sparrows fluttering around the garden. My eye was drawn along our garden path where I noticed two unexpected garden visitors.

Bridleway Project

The sun came out, perfect weather for the washing line to come out, but I didn’t want to disturb my visitors who seemed to be having a lovely afternoon out. Eventually I set off for an afternoon walk (washing still in the basket). Later whilst sitting on my garden bench as dinner cooked the little one hopped on to my fence from the bridle path beyond. After a few moments he decided he didn’t want to share the garden with me and returned to the bridle path beyond.

PS: sorry for the poor quality of the Partridge photos, they were taken through a window with my iPhone

  2. What are Mr and Mrs P doing in your garden?
    You need to grow a pear tree, so we can have a partridge in a pear tree.
    Another four months to go, tick tock.

      I often see them in the neighbouring gardens at the front of my house. I am not sure where they live but they will have to make do with the old oak tree ;-)

  3. Great garden sighting! We had one once years and years ago. It remains a highlight on my garden bird list!!
