Red-Legged Partridge (for Felicity)
I will try and post something other than birds soon, but for now, here is my latest feathered creation, the Red-Legged Partridge Alectoris Rufa. Not to be confused with the Partridge Perdix Perdix, mainly because I like these ones better. My sister once spotted one strutting along, puffed-out and red-eyed in our garden and the photograph she took makes me laugh every time I see it. She requested a partridge next, so here it is ready for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in July! Any other suggestions? I've made 17 out of 50ish birds so far so a few spaces to fill!
