    Just a wee Fantail chick with Mum - first time I have ever seen one
    I was about 3m away but the camera was very basic - Mum turned up and flew him away

    The beak is certainly finch like.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Its a Reeves's pheasant. Very noisy when they fly and are meant to have a huge long tail.
    Also rather aggressive. This one was not going to move
