Today I was tasked with counting the dwindling grey partridge. They have been placed on a red list owing to only 70,000 breeding pairs are estimated to be in the UK. 

I use the air scenting capabilities and skills of my dog to aid me greatly in this task. He can smell their scent, foot scent and wounded birds from an astonishing distance. Despite conditions being ideal, with a favourable wind, none were spotted and only two were spotted on the last count.
