Grey Partridge at Bo Peep

Good to hear from Paul that there were two Grey Partridges up near Bo Peep this weekend (flushed by a Hen Harrier, which in most circumstances would be the more notable sighting).

They’re the closest Greys to Firle that I am aware of – the next closest are reports just North of Seaford, on Lewes Brooks and at Ringmer.

Reared as game, or proper wild birds?

Paul also mentions that Hen Harriers have been seen regularly in the fields behind Bo Peep, with someone seeing an adult male – not a common sight in Sussex.
