This stunning large format photographic book is the first to showcase throughout the course of a year, that iconic game bird, the rare grey partridge.

Renowned photographer Tarquin Millington-Drake spent over 500 hours in hides, capturing the unfolding of a grey partiridge restoration project on local arable farmland.

Observing the illusive greys’ movements and habits, he gradually attuned to these beautiful little birds and managed to capture the thriving progress of the grey partridge as it established a foothold on this former farmland.

Tarquin’s photographic account, with short descriptions of each season, tells the story of the year in which the colony is established, outlines the farming practices that create the premium habitat and all-important thriving insect numbers, also following the often solitary life of Frank the young keeper, whose tireless efforts earned him a Purdey award.
