Great friend of mine, Si Ross was out cycling yesterday. Not especially a birder but very keen cyclist and photographer sent me the photo below, wondering what it was. Quick eyes will recognize a male Reeve’s Pheasant. It’s not on the British list, but I think is/was Category C in France. Anyway pretty stunning bird. I have seen one in France but never in UK. Maybe locals know about it, maybe not? In case anyone in the area is interested, here’s the bird and where it was seen.
