Changing shapes

Grey Partridges are one of those birds that don't get a great deal of votes in the beauty contest polls.

However I think that on close inspection they are one of the most stunning of out native birds, and far out do the Frenchies (Red-legged Partridges) introduced by the gun brigade.

When they are feeding they can look very plump and neckless, almost like fat little rugby balls.

But when they are altered to some potential danger they can stretch up their necks and look quite attenuated. I have to admit that I've never eaten one, but I really think that they will always look much better creeping around the edges of fields rather than dressed on a dinner plate.
