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.
