Pheasant Chicks

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the pheasant nest on site. It's not there any more; the pheasant has moved on and today I saw that she had taken 6 chicks with her. She hasn't gone far. Just wandering around the allotment. At some point we'll need to catch her and put her and her family beyond the safety of our site and away from our veggies!
Her little chicks are so cute though - we couldn't move them on just yet...

I had to save a chick from some netting yesterday. Mother was most unhappy that I got so close - she was hissing very angrily!
