Pheasant

Yuletide
pheasant visiting.
Will he stay
when the shooting season
ends?

Around about the time of the Solstice a cock pheasant appeared in our garden and he has been visiting almost every day since – I think he has only missed two days. The first day he appeared I put out some seed which he gobbled up greedily so I re-filled his supply and he gobbled that up too. I’m guessing he has strayed from the fields up the road to avoid the shooting and wonder if he will return home once the shooting season finishes in a few days from now. Meanwhile I’m going away tomorrow for a long weekend on our boat so have given my youngest son, who will be holding the fort, instructions to look out for him and make sure he has food. Interestingly a second cock pheasant turned up the other day but my resident friend soon saw him off!

The Rag

The colourful rag lying in the gutter
in truth turned out to be
a dead pheasant.

I posted this hurriedly on the ‘River’ Facebook page yesterday. I have polished it a tad to post here.
