Nature Watch: bizarre behaviour of a pheasant

I could hardly believe my eyes this morning when I drew the bathroom curtains and saw a cock pheasant sitting quite high up in the hazel tree that is part of the hedge. I’ve never seen such a thing before and believe it is uncharacteristic behaviour. The next time I looked, he was rootling around on the ground as is more usual. No pic as it wasn’t full daylight. Still isn’t, come to that.

How lovely! I'm not quite sure what normal behaviour is for a pheasant but I'd love to have one in my garden anywhere :)
I see them quite often patrolling the border between my garden and the field. I read that 'they are seldom seen in trees'. My tree sighting was a first.
