Winter Feeding Vlog

01 February 2022 - Published by Francis Buner
Winter feeding is a key measure for improving the winter survival of farmland birds. This consists of supplementing natural food with grain over the winter months to ensure our partridges don't go hungry. One of our jobs as placement students, working on the Interreg PARTRIDGE project, is filling feeders on one of our demonstration farms in Scotland. While considered a seemingly mundane and routine task, feeder filling is one of the occasions we get to experience the wonderful wildlife of Balgonie and have great days out in the field.
