Although grey partridges are seen every year on countless Christmas cards, this once common native bird is now on the Birds of Conservation Concern ‘red list’.
We are taking part in an exciting conservation project run by Incredible Eggs where we are helping to hatch these grey partridge eggs and watch and care for the chicks as they grow. Students will learn all about their history, the habitat the birds need and what happens if this disappears.
Six chicks were born on June 11!
All the hatched birds are picked up by Incredible Eggs after 10 days and will be reared at their farms until the autumn. Once the birds have reached the correct age, they will be relocated and finally released into the wild.
A really inspiring project!
