Pheasants in the Garden

Friday, 9th November 2001, West Yorkshire

hen pheasantpheasantAFTER A COUPLE of weeks when I've been printing and distributing my latest book it's a real treat to have a completely uninterrupted day writing.

On the rare occasions that I take a look outside the only wildlife that I notice is the most obvious, and come to think of it not all that wild; a cock and, later, a hen Pheasant strut around the garden. The seed feeder on the bird table is in almost constant use and pheasants seem to be attracted to the spilt grain.
