This handsome game bird was first introduced by the Normans in the 11thC and most are reared artificially and released as adults for shooting. They are protected during the closed season of February to September, and often seen foraging in fields near woodland edges, copses and hedgerows. The birds have a varied diet of seeds, berries, insects and worms...and green vegetables in winter!
The pheasant has a distinctive loud harsh call and the male often has a harem of several females, which he defends aggressively inside his territory. Eggs are laid in a small depression in long grass or under hedges, and at night the groups roost in the safety of low branches of overhanging trees. In the wild birds can live up to 7 years.
