Hello, I hope you're having a good weekend and welcome to my recent followers. I seem to have acquired a few new ones recently, which is lovely.
I've been trying to get some photos of the pheasants that have been hanging out in our garden recently but these two seem a bit shyer than normal and refuse to come any closer to the house, probably because of Lottie, despite the bread I keep throwing out the window! This is the best I could get with my zoom lens.
We usually get them around this time of year. Escapees from the local shoot, they are attracted to the neighbours' gardens who have hens for the food, and they often stick around for months. I've dug out some pic's from previous years as they are so beautiful. It's like having pets without any of the responsibility!
This was a really tame one that would almost feed out of our hands.
This gorgeous green one was my favourite. He would use the guinea pig hutch outside our window as his perch to call for the ladies! There were a few females around and I found one with loads of chicks nesting under the rhubarb one spring. They ended up disappearing into next door's garden but they were so sweet!
Have a good weekend
