And a Partridge in a Pear Tree

More like a juvenile pheasant really but, just as we were thinking about a change to our Christmas Dinner, a well-fed fox turned up and made a pathetic attempt at a kill. Later, a tortoiseshell cat gave an equally unsuccessful demonstration of stalking through the short grass. Not seen the bird since .... Merry Christmas everyone.

It looks a well fed bird. It doesn't look too startled or feathers ruffled. Guess it's seen it all before.
Happy Christmas to everyone also.

That partridge looks more like a hen pheasant to me.

Our partridge/pheasant has returned after being in hiding over Christmas.
