Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We have captured no evidence for the effects of using alerts to reduce grey partridge by-catch during shoots on farmland wildlife.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
This intervention involves using alerts to avoid shooting grey partridges Perdix perdix. Alerts may include using whistles to indicate when a covey of grey partridge has been flushed (Buner & Aebischer 2008).
