I saw a flock of about 10 grey partridges in the stubble field between Balcomie Caravan Park and Kirklands this evening. The young of the year stay with adults through the winter so an autumn flock (covey) gives an indication of the breeding success of the summer. So far so good. I will have to keep my eyes out for other coveys to see if the other Crail pairs also got lucky.
