I don't like to whinge (much), but what is it with pheasants? Not one, not two, but three of the idiots ran out in front of me at various points this afternoon - while I was driving.
Luckily there was nobody else on the road so I was able to take evasive action, otherwise they would all have been history. It astounds me that these creatures manage to survive long enough to perpetuate the species. Going on today's form they should have become extinct years ago.
