Red-legged Partridge at Caerhays

I was lucky to spot these Red-legs close to the roadside at Caerhays Castle near Portholland and took the shots from the car window. Pheasants are bred in this area specially for shooting parties and the partridges take advantage and feed on the provided seed. The light was good. The camera was in Aperture Priority (as always). The aperture was raised to f/5.6 and resulting shutter speed was high at approx 1000th sec.
