A Visitor



We had a new bird come to visit the bird table this weekend that I thought you might like to see




Pheasants are a regular pain round here at this time of year, usually playing daredevils in the road. But I love to see them, they remind me of my gundog days and I love their beautiful, festive colouring. They're pretty tasty too! Ahem.




He hung around picking up seed and inadvertently frightened off all the chickens, before trooping off back to his own little hedgerow somewhere




A little splash of colour against the leaves, he really brightened my day

  1. Pheasants are one of the things I miss about home, my folks live on the edge of a wood so they're everywhere and they can be such characters :-)

    Gorgeous photos, Rachael!

  4. I love seeing pheasants, we have one that lives somewhere near the bottom of our garden haha. I love the noise they make (is it a caw? I'm not good at describing sounds haha)

  5. Gorgeous photos! When my parents first moved to the house their in now in the country I was only about 8 or 9 and I remember seeing a pheasant for the first time and thinking it was like a magical creature! Plus they're the logo for Jack Wills!
