Wild pheasants

Recommended Posts

We just finally had our hay cut at last :boogie: and the pheasants were every where. We have had three wild clutches that though smaller in size than thier released cousins had much better feather . One clutch is all bar 1, hens. We also for the first time in a while found eggs beneath the hedgerows this year. The wee man tried hatchin them but had no luck. Yeah I know he should off left them but he's showing an intrest so thats fine by me, better than the X-box. Anyway all I'm saying is with having too leave the grass for the extra months has really helped the birds in a big way. Heres too a good season when it kicks off :thumbs:

I've noticed that myself this year. I put up a clutch of pheasants last week I'd say were 3 to 4 weeks old. In the same field I seen a clutch maybe 6 or 7 weeks old. All in a field of corn that should have been cut a month ago.

I think I,ll cut early next year then real late . we don't have many acres too make money off and the fauna love it when its left. like I said in previous posts we've had boar on. Though theyre for spring........let them settle in. the birds etc love it so why not.

the most important thing for wild birds to flourish is keep at the ground vermin in the spring stoats, weasels, rats and hedge hogs , keep at them , we have a good stock of wild birds, and even grey partridge still habitat are little shoot
