Snow Partridge Lerwa lerwa


Category E

Native Range

Asia. The Himalayan region from northern Pakistan eastwards to the Tibetan Plateau and in central China.

British Occurence

The localised range of the species means that it will never be a natural vagrant to Britain though it doesn't appear to be commonly kept in captivity and I don't know of any documented escapes.
