Chris from Las Aventuras (please see link to his blog on right hand side of page) mentioned in a comment on my last post that he would love to see a photo of a Pheasant in the wild.
The bird I spotted yesterday was in the middle of the field and too far away to take a picture with the 70 - 300mm lens but here's a couple of photos I took in January last year at Ladywalk Nature Reserve where a male and female Pheasant were feeding under the feeders. It was my first outing with the lens I had just had for Christmas so the photos were some of my first attempts - husband adjusted the contrast on Photoshop at the time to try and make them better!
Pheasant (Phagianus colchicus) Male
I will try and get some better photos when I am out on my travels and if I ever manage to visit Norfolk I will try and get pics of Golden Pheasants.
Spotted my first greenfinch of the year on the garden feeders this morning - the first garden sighting this year!
