The Return of Mr P?

Of course this may not be the same pheasant which visited a few times last year. He was doing a grand job of clearing up the seeds scattered by the smaller birds. It must have stayed well over half an hour which gave plenty of time for some still and video shots:

Pheasant and Blackbird - which gives a good idea of their relative sizes:

Finally some silent video, shot hand held with the Canon 70D fitted with 100-400mm zoom lens:


  1. Beautiful images of a very attractive if rather stupid bird.

    1. Especially when they keep changing their mind when crossing the road Adrian.

    2. Expensive birds they are. Cost me a new wing mirror last year, not cheap are mirrors.

  2. He sure brought a lot of color to your garden!

    1. Must be one of my most colourful visitors Wilma.

Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
