Flower, dragon flies and possibly partridge

Came across Common Fleabane in the Big Meadow today, see the wildflower photo collection. There were also lots of large brown dragon flies which I remember from previous years but don’t know exactly what they are.

I also put up two birds which were certainly partridge size and shape. As they flew off toward Lower Sowerholme I got an impression that their colouring was two shades of brown, body and wings. My birdbook information is consistent with my observation but I can’t be confident as it all happened quickly.
