Pheasant

This is a recent visitor to my garden, enjoying eating my bird food. In the past I have had many visiting pheasants that have escaped from a nearby estate that bred them for shooting. Some of them became hand tame and the odd one actually bred and reared young. Unfortunately one brood I  witnessed quickly diminished I suspect due to the predation by magpies. I think the estate has stopped rearing pheasants now so I am surprised to see a very smart cock pheasant appearing. It is a couple of years now since I last saw one here.
