The white pheasant is wintering with us again this year, which is great to see. I do wonder where he goes for the summer. Once he gets used to me again, I’ll try and get a decent photo!
While he disappears on occasion, sometimes for days at a time, our white feathered pheasant is still in residence. I assume his trips are to help spread the white feathered genes, but I wouldn’t want to make assumptions. It’s nice that he still comes to visit, and it gave me a chance to get a better picture of him. He certainly is less scared of me than he used to be, and is clearly not at all bothered by the sheep:
Our white feathered pheasant friend was out this morning, and seemed to be hanging out nice and close, so I decided to take a few photos of him. As soon as I got the camera out he started to run, clearly he’s had run-ins with the paparazzi before. Still with some careful stalking, I managed to get a couple of okish photos of him. One day I’ll get a proper shot!
