Partridge in the past tree

In the news this week was the possible demise, due to bad wether this year of Grey Partridges and Turtle doves. The Daily Telegraph contribution to this sad conservation story was an article and then in the Sunday Telegraph Stella colour supplement a recipe for "Roast partridge with red wine and juniper berries".

The recipe starts with Ingredients list "8 Grey or red legged partridges"  ...   Conservation fail.

Do not eat this bird !!!!
