In Britain, grey partridge numbers have dropped by an astonishing 80% since 1945. In order to show people how to save this beautiful and iconic bird of the British countryside, the Lincolnshire Grey Partridge Group will be holding an evening dedicated to informing farmers and land managers of how they can help to reverse this alarming decline in numbers.
The event will take place on Thursday 13th July at Metheringham in Lincolnshire and starts at 6pm.
The evening will include a walk round a farm, looking at habitats and their management and the use of predator control for game and wildlife with an emphasis on grey partridge conservation.
Light bites and drinks will be available at the end of the evening.
The cost is £14. To book, call Lynda Ferguson on 01425 651013 or click here to book your place.
The evening is kindly supported by Jas Martin & Co.
