Pheasant and chicks visit the wildlife garden

Today we were treated to a visit from a female pheasant and her newly hatched brood of 5 chicks. The small family were making short work of any bird seed that happened to be on the floor under the bird feeders and the mother was encouraging the chicks to forage for worms and insects that could be found among the undergrowth. Here are some pictures we managed to take before the mother called the brood to her and then sat on them behind some logs.
