Blue Melanistic

Recently DH bought a wildlife cam and we've been having fun setting it up and baiting for those elusive Pinemartins, but to no avail... it seems "Charles" here and his lady friend "Belinda" do the rounds past this point about 50 times a night... no look-in then for any other creature who might just like jam sandwiches!!  Still it's quite nice to have footage to sketch from... this handsome chap is a little unusual as he's a Blue Melanistic Pheasant... some kind of genetic thing... and his lady is a very dark brown (again unusual as the females are usually lighter).
