A partridge? Do you live near a shoot?
Hi Lunar.. I think it is possibly a juvenile male partridge. We do live about a 1/4 of a mile away from some woods where game is shot so he could have come from there. It was unusual to see him in the front garden as we live on the main road through our village so it's quite busy. I did check a few hours later and there was no sign of him again (not even on the road!) so I think he is okay!
