Partridge chicks!

Sorry to recycle a sketch but we have exciting news from the partridge family. You might remember me mentioning a pair of partridges who had been hanging round the farmyard. Well, they’ve had babies! Eleven little partridge chicks have been picking and scratching around the farm. On discussion with our next door neighbour we think they must have a nest in the wood at the bottom of the garden. We’re hoping they’ll all make it but with 10 border collies on the farm all we can do is hope they keep their heads down. Our next door neighbour commented dryly that, of course the father partridge wasn’t anywhere to be seen. “Maybe he’s homebrewing somewhere,” I suggested with a wink in Big Dreamer’s direction.
