Golden Pheasant

Wolferton Triangle Norfolk.
Two birds feeding on verge this morning, this was the second bird, are they pure Golden Pheasants both being 1st Winter males, or are they hybrids.
As we sat in the car watching then the first bird crossed the road in full view, followed by the second bird a minute later, shame about the early morning light.



Golden Pheasant

This was the first of the two birds that crossed the road.

More pics of these strange birds.






Glaucous Gull





1st Winter Cley beach Norfolk, apparently has been feeding on a dead baby Seal near car park, it was several hundred yards down the beach when we saw it, always being flushed by the day trippers out for a sunday afternoon walk




Glaucous Gull

Flew from beach and landed on sea, a very confiding bird.
