Image of the Day – 111

There’s a shooting estate adjacent to the League’s main sanctuary near Dulverton in Somerset. As a result, our staff there often find birds on the sanctuary. Here’s a beautiful male pheasant snapped by our Head of Operations, Paul Tillsley.

Most people look at pheasants and think they are wild, natural and free range. The reality is quite different, and later today DEFRA will publish new guidelines on the rearing of game birds. We expect, and hope, that they will ban the cruel and inhumane cages once and for all. Watch this space.
