As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Gorgeous golden pheasant makes a rare trip out of the woods to Huddersfield

A golden pheasant - which usually prefers to hide from sight in dense woodland - is a regular visitor to a Bradley garden

19:59, 21 OCT 2017

A rarely seen multi-coloured bird has been visiting the garden of a Bradley couple.

The male golden pheasant – resplendent in its yellow and orange-red plumage – has been spotted on consecutive days by Anne and Steve Bushell, who live at Bradley Road.

Mr Bushell, 66, a retired mental health officer, said the inquisitive gamebird made its first visit about 4.30pm yesterday (THURS) and turned up again about 10.15 this morning (FRI).

Mr Bushell took video of the bird as it strutted around the back garden and came up to the sun lounge window.
