Today's Field Note:
Just leaving the industrial park a large and rather shy bird appeared in an park strip landscaped with ground cover roses. He was pecking at the shrivelled rose hips and would have completely blended into his background had the snow on the ground not provided a white backdrop to his chestnut brown plummage. A better look while I waited for the light to change, yes, a male adolescent ring necked pheasant - it's been years since I've seen one in this area, so much has been built up.
