Male GOLDEN PHEASANT videoed in Piccotts End front garden by Gwyneth Sharp today.


Male GOLDEN PHEASANT photographed & videoed in front garden in Piccotts End by Gwyneth Sharp today - probably strayed from collection at Bridens Camp or possibly from garden with Guinea Fowl backing onto L.Buzzard Rd. at Piccotts End.

Below are some screen-grabs taken from the video Gwyneth took at the time...

and here is the video she shot...



[Since then a Male REEVES' PHEASANT has been seen at Gaddesden Row on the 17/02/14 - it seems a number of ornamental birds may have escaped from a private collection locally so look out for other exotics in fields, woods & gardens N of the town.
