  • We have a pair in the field directly opposite our cottage in West Wales. They make such funny noises - last year there was just the one, then this year 2 - there were foxes breeding in the field too so the pheasants moved up the lane to another field and had chicks. They used to walk in the lane - the male was always asserting himself and wouldn't get out of the way of the car!  The last cople of weeks they are back in the filed....  

    Where they come from? Escaped from breeders, no doubt - they rear them for shoots.....  now safe in your garden and my field!!
