On Sunday morning before the deluge began it was a clear sunny morning at Bellasis Bridge and seven Skylarks were having their own little singing competition when a white shape appeared in the distance. My heart jumped as I thought the long awaited appearance of Little Egret close to patch had occured however even my dodgy bins could identify an all white Pheasant. Scanning around there were forty plus Pheasant mainly on freshly sown land which included another two white birds.
Somewhere in my memory banks I remember being told it was unlucky to shoot a white Pheasant but now it seems they are an estate fashion accessory and a quick check on Google found many farms that actually specialise in breeding them. A quandry for the shooter perhaps....I doubt it!
