The Reeve Pheasants.

The local very large Bury shoot has been putting down about half a dozen Reeve Pheasants for the past 3 years, apparently if someone shoots one they have to pay for a round of drinks to all those on the shoot. They are usually at Louisa gate, but seem to have moved to Bury and the main road. They seem to be silly birds, I was waking the dog at Louisa Gate and a pheasant insisted on walking beside us. Dog had to be on a very tight lead!

Many thanks Ann for clearing up the mystery. SW
