This very tame female pheasant turned up about a month ago, not sure where she came from.
Last Tuesday we heard a commotion as she was chased down the garden by a passing dog. On further investigation we found her by the road side with 12 newly hatched chicks. She moved into our shed for a couple of days to recover and look after her new arrivals.
By day three the pheasant family of 13 finally ventured from their makeshift shelter and basked in the spring sunshine..
