Radio transmitters appeared to cause significant mortality among captured Perdix perdix (34%) during the 1st week postrelease, after accounting for mortality expected from other sources. Survival of partridge living >7 days posttrapping from early January to 1 May was 38%. The major source of mortality after the 1st week was raptor predation. Body mass and sex were significantly related to probability of survival. Partridge weighing ≥400 g had higher survival (50%) than those weighing 400 g (20%). Females had greater survival (59%) than males (19%). -from Author
