Another Pheasant Alley Fun Day

Artist's Description

..with apologies to the Monkees…

I recently spent a happy hour at Leighton Moss RSPB reserve in Lancashire,NW England.
On the way onto the main reserve is a small screen through which you watch the bird feeders and the birds on them . The path to the screen passes some picnic benches and I call it Pheasant Alley because the cheeky beggars lurk to entrap unsuspecting picnickers.
They are quite tame and it’s not a problem of getting close so much as a problem of getting back far enough for a shot…this devil cock pheasant just kept following me as I tried to get him completely in frame. Such fun….hence the title.
The shot below shows all I could get before I manged to outrun him.
Sony Alpha 350 DSLR ,Tamron 18-70 lens.
