Two partridges are visiting us at Croft-an-Ailein each day and tuck in to spilled birdseed from our bird table. They then toddle off across the road into the Cunningham’s field. We hear from Janette at Rock Cottage that they come and feed there too.
It would be interesting to know how many others in the village are on their gastronomic trail. They are looking particularly well fed!
(If you’ve seen them, click the ‘comment’ link below, and tell us where else they’re feeding.)
About Fearnan Village Association
Fearnan Village Association was formed in 2007 to provide a means through which those who live in the village can come together to discuss and respond to issues of importance to the village, particularly those that will have an impact on our quality of life. We also organise social events, such as the very popular Pudding Night in February, Strawberry TeaZ in July, and other events and coffee mornings throughout the year.

Yes – moi aussi, Joan ( well they don’t have far to come …. ). As you say, fine ” plumptious ” looking birds they are too! Definitely ” new ” for 2011. Red legged partridges, so they are …
Aaah! How lovely!
Any Pear Trees around? … Sorry, just couldn’t resist …
The two partridges are also feeding in the field below the farm
have not seen the partridges from Rock Cottage but we have a fairly dominant male pheasant and up to 4 of his harem looking for bird table seed or other offerings stroll through ours and adjacent gardens bold as brass three or four times a day,comes within about 6 feet if stay still and does not run away if you say BOO quite loudly.Man and Nature in almost perfect harmony?-well until they pull up seedlings……………..
Last year there was a family of five in our cottage garden, the visitors thought they were grouse. They eventually ambled off in the direction of Glen Lyon but so far no sightings this year.
The partridges have been coming into our garden at Dail Sithein and eating the bird feeder seed here too!
