Less Elusive Pheasants

We often hear Pheasants when we’re out walking – they have a pretty distinctive sound. But the only times I usually see them are when they are on the roadside and I’m driving somewhere. However, at RSPB Ynyshir the other day there were about 6 or 7 young Pheasants hanging around the bird feeders! At first I wasn’t sure what they were as they don’t have the long tails I’d expect for a Pheasant, but that’s because they’re young. A quick check on the RSPB website and a bit of googling confirmed the identification. They were quite brave – not too fussed about people coming and going, so I was able to get a few nice shots of them.
