Spring partridge count about to get underway

Our spring Grey partridge count is about to begin with those who have signed up to our Partridge Count Scheme due to receive their counting forms very shortly.

We've been running this voluntary scheme since 1933 to collect information on the annual abundance and breeding success of grey partridges.

During the spring count we are looking to assess breeding abundance whilst the autumn count measures breeding success.

Already signed up to the scheme?

If you are already signed up to the Partridge Count Scheme please look out for your count forms as they should be hitting your doorstep in the coming week.

Given the saturated ground, access to count may be delayed for a while, so the opportunity to count could be short. But please don’t leave it too late.

We need your support with the count so we can highlight the successful measures employed and provide landowners and managers with further encouragement to strengthen their conservation efforts.
