The Cotswold Grey Partridge Group invite you to a farm walk at Mayridge Farm, Englefield Estate, Berkshire, by kind permission of Richard Benyon MP.
A part of the estate has been dedicated to the conservation of the grey partridge and other farmland wildlife and has had a wide range of habitat improvements implemented. This has all been overseen by experienced grey partridge keeper David Wiggins and the estate is the current holder of the Cotswold Grey Partridge Trophy.
We will look at a wide range of different habitats such as conservation headlands, beetle banks and wild bird seed mixes and discuss the best management practices for wild grey partridge.
The evening will start at 4.30pm with a walk lasting around two hours. Peter Thompson (GWCT) and the hosts will lead the group. The walk will then be followed by drinks and a barbecue.
The event is kindly sponsored by The Calmsden Estate.
