Did you know that St Francis of Assisi was a Permanent Deacon? Well he was, and obviously this pheasant took me to be the good saint, because he faithfully came to visit me each evening whilst I sat out on the balcony of my lodge (having a glass of red wine)!
Sadly, I didn't know what to feed the bird (do they eat haggis or what?) - so it got no scraps from my table. But it looked well fed. It had better watch out when the shooting season opens!
