Red-legged Partridge chick

A tiny Red-legged Partridge chick – probably just a few days old – stands alone on the edge of a country road, as the hen Partridge has quickly disappeared into a hedge just off-screen to leave the fledgling to fend on its own…

All worked out well though: as I walked on, the Mother game bird popped back out and corralled this one and the rest of the chicks together, then they all took off across a nearby field.
