Happy New Year
I had to go up to Boreham Wood in Hertfordshire over the new year on family issues . So birding was on the back boiler but I did see a Rose-Ringed Parakeet .
Later on in the day we went to Flitwick in Bedfordshire to see if we could catch up with a very strange bird a male Lady Amherst`s Pheasant . We arrived to find a few birders already there and after a bit of a wait the bird came out into view and as you can see its a cracking looking bird .
This is only the second time that I have seen these birds with my 1st way back in 1987 at Ampthill that is very close to Flitwick .
