During the end of May we drilled around 6 acres of Kings Wild Bird seed mixtures as part of our Entry Level Stewardship scheme in Walgrave, Northampton.  We have chosen a mix that offers a winter hardy cover and season long feed for farmland birds as well as game birds for our small farm shoot.  Thanks to the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust ‘action plan’ that focus on Grey (English) partridge, we have seen an increase in breeding pairs over the last few years by following the guidelines.  We hope to see the benefits for year to come!
