Unknown bird

Can anyone identify this large bird which was walking around my garden making a 'guk guk' sound when I git home from work?  It was bigger than a woodpigeon and was a bit ungainly in flight when it flew over the hedge after spotting me sneaking up with the camera! image

    Looks like a Common or Grey partridge

    Wow, didn't know they were around here (3m south of Leicester, 50 yards away from the A6)  First one I've seen in the nearly 4 decades I've lived here!  Thanks folks!
