I arrived home from a holiday in Suffolk to find a Partridge sitting on my fence, apparently it's been house sitting while I have been away.
Most surprised to see this as I live on a residential estate about a five minute walk from fields, crossing a busy main road, so why is it here? It looks in good health and seems to be fairly tame. The only reason I can think of is it is attracted to the rich pickings from my bird feeders as my buggy nibble left overs are such a favourite with Pigeons.

The bird has brown feathers on its back and the distinctive Partridge colouring but I'm not sure what sex it is?

According to passers by it has been hanging around all week. Undecided what to do really, should I leave it alone or contact RSPCA to get it relocated?
