Female pheasants and goodbye to geese

Saw three female pheasants in Big Meadow in the rushes this morning while walking along the footpath – didn’t seem bothered by ponies, who were pretty close.

The pink-footed geese left yesterday – no idea where they go on to, but lovely to see them while they’re here. Certainly interesting to hear Ian and Jon’s views on why they might prefer the hill – maybe it’s both aspects. Apols for low quality of photo.
