Partridges

We manufacture two Partridge sculptures, a single bird and a nesting pair. They are well sculpted and are amazingly life like. The figurines are best displayed as a centrepiece ornament in a well lit room where you can highlight its details with subtle lighting. Our figurines are fragile and should be treated like porcelain, needing the occasional dust and polish.

A medium-sized, plump gamebird with a distinctive orange face. Flies with whirring wings and occasional glides, showing a chestnut tail. It is strictly a ground bird, never likely to be found in pear trees! Groups of 6-15 (known as coveys) are most usually seen outside the breeding season. Once very common and widespread, it has undergone serious declines throughout most of its range and is a Red List species.

They are traditionally found in lowland arable areas of Great Britain from the chalk areas in the south, into East Anglia, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, reaching into the north of England and the East of Scotland as far as Aberdeenshire. There are small populations in other parts such as the permanent rushy pastures in the north Pennines. They are largely absent from N Ireland.
