Update on the Pheasants

Well, the four pheasants that we rescued have survived, grown up and flown the nest.

We plucked up courage to open their pen - and off they went into the Big Wide World.

Although not quite. They know where it's safe and warm so they come home of an evening!

I doubt this will last - apart from finding mates and being wild, there are all the dangers of traffic in the roads (which is the reason for their mum being killed) pheasant shoots, foxes etc.

We've done our best though.So let's just hope they keep safe!

  1. Rather sad to see them leave but I do hope that you will see them every so often and maybe they will even bring back their young!

    1. I expect they will be around if the winter weather gets bad as well. Yes, very sad to see them go, but they are wild birds it would be cruel to keep them penned in.

Thank you for leaving a comment your interest is very much appreciated! It will be published as soon as possible - depending on whether I am at my computer or walking up the lane, or being chased by the goose or helping mend fences after the pony has broken through YET AGAIN.... :-)
