The GWCT is running two more of its popular one-day courses on grey partridge re-introduction methods in northern England on 1st and 2nd October 2014, one in North Yorkshire and the second in County Durham. The events, run in conjunction with Perdix Wildlife Supplies Ltd, a leading supplier of grey partridges for re-introduction projects, involve a combination of presentations and practical sessions covering habitat management, predation control and rearing and releasing methods. GSC Grays are sponsors of both of the GWCT Grey Partridge Groups which cover this region: Yorkshire and Durham & Northumberland.
In any re-introduction project, attention to detail is paramount and the day will be run by Dr Roger Draycott from the Advisory department, leading grey partridge biologist Dr Francis Buner, and Dr David Butler from Perdix Wildlife, a game biologist who has been rearing grey partridges using extensive systems specifically designed for re-introduction projects.
Based on sound science and practical experience, the course will benefit anyone interested in looking to increase numbers of grey partridges on their farm. The courses have been popular with game managers and conservation organisations alike. Duncan Mackenzie, Headkeeper at Clune and Corrybrough Estate, an attendee at a recent GWCT course in Scotland, commented: “The course really was a success. It was very interesting, educational and enjoyable. It has certainly boosted the enthusiasm around this glen. I think everyone locally agreed that they had learnt something new. If only all courses were like that!”
