With no sign of the bird early doors, whilst searching I did discover a cracking male Whinchat in the grassland near Alexandra Lake, this was later joined by a male Northern Wheatear - now there's a difficult beauty contest decision. Soon after I was watching my first Common Whitethroat of the year when Nick text to say the Partridge had been seen again south of the Broom fields.
Quickly making my way over there, I found the bird hunkered down in the long grass - back of the net, patch tick! Moving closer and trying to get a slightly better view, the bird made a dash for cover and flew into the nearest patch of Brooms, hotly pursued by a Crow. Further searching in the area resulted in a blank, but later as I was discussing Morocco in a bit more detail with Richard the bird came out onto Centre Path in full view, before scarpering quickly back into the long grass again.
