Last week, on a lovely sunny day, we visited Abbotsbury Gardens on the Dorset coast near the Chesil Beach. More on our visit later. What I must tell you about is the most colourful bird I’ve ever seen.
A Golden Pheasant wandered past us us we were drinking tea. Presumably looking for crumbs from our table. My Collins Bird Guide has one word next to an image of the bird, and that’s, ‘Unmissable!’ Here are some of photos of it as it walked by. Click on images to expand.
