Grey Partridge

First of all this is not a request for information which I will be paid for, Middleton IE involvement is purely voluntary.

Two Grey Partridge were seen at Middleton IE a week or so ago and, without using the dreaded 's'* word, I was wondering how healthy the population was in the surrounding areas with respect to the likely future status at Middleton IE. We had assumed they were extinct in the immediate vicinity, although they have certainly been seen recently at Heysham Moss.

This is really an appeal to Overton, Sunderland, Middleton-ites or anyone who casually visits the area.

Thanks very much


* any variation of 'sustain', which has now joined 'premier' in the meaningless stakes, courtesy of waffle produced by cliched, factually-challenged (with respect to a real ecological understanding of the site(s) they are talking about) "environmentalists". Do read the current issue of the excellent British Wildlife magazine for a thorough savaging of the use of the word.
