Red[legged partridge

On our trip to Spain last May we saw a red-legged partridge at the roadside.
Usually they run away from danger rather than flying.
As they are considered to be a game bird hiding in the grass and bushes is probably safer than making yourself a target in the air.

While looking for information on this bird I kept coming across recipes and hunting instructions.
Alectoris rufa
