Turning the Wolds Grey!
The Yorkshire Wolds is the perfect environment for wild Grey partridges, a native species to this country, that has declined by over 90% since the 1950s. This year’s annual meeting will visit the current holder of the Yorkshire Grey Partridge Trophy, Mr Tim Coleman, who farms near Bridlington. Specifically we will visit Greenlands Farm which is an excellent place to discuss how you can integrate management for conserving grey partridge into a commercial arable farm through targeted habitat and predator management supported by supplementary feeding for grey partridges and other farmland birds. If there is enough interest we would like to set up an informal Wolds grey partridge group with members contributing to our Partridge Count Scheme. More information will be available on the day.
The event will be led by Roger Draycott, the Trust’s senior lowland gamebird ecologist, with support from Henrietta Appleton of the Trust’s Advisory Service. Chris Tomson of the RSPB will also be present.
Places cost £15 inc VAT and refreshments.
