Goldies at the Triangle
Male Golden Pheasant, Wolferton, Norfolk
I had to go to the shops in King's Lynn this afternoon and with half an hour to spare I took a short diversion around the Wolferton Triangle in search of Golden Pheasants or more accurately Golden / Lady Amhersts Pheasant hybrids.
As you can see I was successful although as ever these are right skulkers and this is the best shot I managed of one of the three males I saw. Species 101 in Norfolk for the year.
Also had an obliging Woodcock feeding in the snow by the side of the road, you can see a picture on my Flickr page link opposite.
