Partridge calling

The talk of the village is where have the Partridges gone - there is now just one remaining with the other five now disappeared for for a couple of days. Our one remaining Partridge still dutifully patrols the garden and at dawn calls in vain from the top of our chimmney for his missing flock. This bird had a near escape with a fox this morning and we had seen previously the local black Cat taking an interest too. Maybe the other Partridges know when good times are nearly at an end and have moved on to pastures new.
