A 28-year-old man from Pilling, in Lancashire, was sentenced at Blackpool Magistrates Court on Friday 16 April for the theft of 12 rare white redleg partridges from the well-known Hy-Fly Game Hatcheries at Preesall, in Lancashire, last August.
Which bird flies faster and needs more lead - a partridge or a pheasant? Im reasonably okay at killing driven pheasants cleanly, but I do struggle on partridge shown on the same drive at the same height. Can you shed any light on my problem?
The number of red-legged partridges reared for shooting has risen substantially in recent years and may now account for about a quarter of birds released, according to the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT).
