Partridge Photo Shoot in North Devon!

….not the usual kind of shoot associated with Partridge!

Last week we were fortunte to have the opportunity to shoot some photos of our galvanised Partridge Feeders in use on a shoot in North Devon.

As the Gamekeepers amongst you will know and appreciate, the young partridge need weening off the initial tube feeders and onto another type of feeder.  This is a gentle process which enables the young birds to become familiar and move onto the larger feeders they will be using after release from the rearing pens.

The photos below were taken after just a couple of days in the rearing pens and we since understand the weening is going well.

Our very satisfied customer said the side extensions and restrictors are invaluable for keeping the pheasants out as partridge food is more than double to price of pheasant food so he doesn’t want the pheasants getting at it after release.

Our new and improved galvanised bird feeders are proving very popular and selling well this season.  Word is spreading amongst the Gamekeerper community and we are proud of the latest testimonial provided by Exmoor Headkeeper, Gareth Clark.

 
“We are already using most of the 40 feeders and I am delighted to say after over 2″ of rain all the feed remained bone dry.”

“This season we have started using the Dymond Engineering Partridge Feeders.

They are well built weighing some 25kg empty, thus not blowing around. They are 100% water tight, suitable for the Exmoor wind and rain.

Holding approximately 60kg of compound pelleted feed, they enable keepers to fill only in favourable weather, say on a twice a week basis.  NO  wet pellets clogging feeders at all.

Certainly we will look to increase our feeder number in years to come.”  Gareth Clark, Headkeeper, Buttery Sporting.

 

Gareth’s comments certainly reflect the feedback we get from Headkeepers and shooting estates.
