Pheasant chicks.


Mother pheasant has been a regular visitor proudly showing off her chicks as they eat under the bird table. There were originally 11 of them but at the last count this morning there were still 8 left alive and very frisky. Mother is very watchful of them and clucks quietly to round them all up while they give off high pitched squeaks. Needless to say father is nowhere in sight and one of two of them are real independent little souls and she has to patiently go after them.
