Albino Pheasant – Llandough Cowbridge

I first saw this bizarre looking female albino pheasant in late December. Then I recorded it a of couple of times on trail cameras in late April and have now regularly see it walking in a field, now in the company of a mate. I’m quite surprised it’s survived this long as it stands out from a mile away. On the subject of strangely pigmented birds, on way to Llandough from St Mary Church I almost always see a leucistic male blackbird which has an almost completely bald head. It is usually singing from the hedge or telegraph pole in plain sight.
