Red Legged Partridges at Paignton

Totally surprised, driving a regular back road from Stoke Gabriel towards Sainsburys, wifey spotted a partridge in a field gateway. Screeched to halt, backed up, and saw 3 x Red Legged, which only retreated slowly from us. From Sainsburys, head on towards Stoke, past cider sales barn, over the brook, and there is a sharp left hand bend, with field entrance immediately adjacent. Will return in the morning with camera and optimism !
