if i had a pear tree i wouldn't like them

I always think of partridges as being a bit like pigeons, but slimmer and less ugly iykwim? Have never actually seen or met one though.

<<no idea what this thread is about emoticon>>

LOL that everyone knows something abt them tho grin

typical MN

They're nearly as stupid as pheasants.

bronze Thu 08-Oct-09 21:14:56

I know they eat our seedlings and move more quickly when shot at (except on the rare occasion one gets hit then it doesnt move much )

2 for £5 in Tesco today. Tiny buggers.

FlightAttendant Thu 08-Oct-09 21:16:23

See this ought really to have been more like

'what do ppl think abt really terrible crimes?' or something. That would have sparked a to-do.

halfcut Thu 08-Oct-09 21:17:25

I let my kids chase the buggers is that ok?

I liked David Cassidy, but the rest were a bit odd

squeaver Thu 08-Oct-09 21:21:23

fruitspooksbatsintheeaves Thu 08-Oct-09 21:21:44

Chaotica Thu 08-Oct-09 21:22:30

FlightAttendant Thu 08-Oct-09 21:22:37

And I had no IDEA they moved in such neat formation.

smoking2shoes Thu 08-Oct-09 21:22:58

FlightAttendant Thu 08-Oct-09 21:23:01
