Every year following the shooting season numerous pheasants can be seen in rural areas of England. These birds have been given a sporting chance and have made it past the hunters guns and escaped to freedom. At liberty to roam, these pheasants can live out the rest of their lives wherever they please. This project started when I saw a pheasant in my local park. What was surprising is that I live in an urban area. Since this first sighting I have investigated the urban pheasant further with some surprising results. If you spot any urban pheasants then please get in contact.
