Weird Partridge???

Months ago I was walking across Somerset, UK, when I see this large, strange-looking bird which instantly flies off. Only yesterday was I surfing the web and found a photograph of the same bird I saw. The photographer claims it is a grey partridge, but it looks nothing like one! Can anybody help?

Wow, that's so interesting! I've never heard of them before. There were farms nearby where I saw them, so I assume it was domesticated. Thank you very much for your answer :)

I'm Brazilian, and this is a fairly common fowl in Brazil, where they are raised as chickens. They were introduced here centuries ago by the Portuguese, who brought them from Africa, their original habitat. In English they are called Helmeted Guineafowl. Find more about them here:
