Shiphay, Torquay

07.40

Very surprised to find a Red-Legged Partridge strutting up and down on my back lawn this morning!  An unlikely, enclosed and suburban location for the species.  Although it seemed happy nosing about on the adjacent patio and through the daffodils, I thought that I'd check that it was OK.  As soon as I stepped outside, it lifted off and flew powerfully in the direction of Torbay Hospital. 

An interesting start to the day.
