Wild Scottish Redleg Partridge
Wild Scottish Redleg Partridge was originally introduced from Spain and France to Scotland.
This is a species which thrives on open arable farmland but will also adapt to marginal moorland situations if additional food is provided. Numbers have increased considerably in recent decades to the point where it is the second most numerous game bird in the UK.
Redlegs have a varied diet ranging from insects to seeds and plant shoots and leaves, an adult Redleg Partridge will weigh in the region of 400-500g. These plump-bodied little birds come exclusively from the Highlands of Northern Scotland. They naturally feed on a diet of heather, tundra and grasses, which helps to develop their characteristically lean, mildly flavored and tender white meat. (Partridges are one of the mildest-flavored game birds.)
