I am lucky to be doing a course that allows me to get out and about and see things i wouldn't see sat in a classroom. When doing a woodland plant survey my class stumbled across this pheasant hiding right next to a foot path. It was less than 6ft away, laying perfectly still, making us wonder for a moment if it was actually alive or not. After taking this photo we left it alone, returned soon after and it had gone on its way. Thinking back, i am amazed that it took so long for us to see something so close to us.
