our garden: NP15 2DX

Main Sighting: 2 male Kalij Pheasants
Presumably escapees; I know there are some feral Kalij in London area (close to Key Gardens) but never heard of them in Wales. One male and a female (that could have been a female ring-necked) came to our garden yesterday; 2 male Kalij came and spent 20 mins or so in our garden about 8am today (we live just outside Kingcoed - a hamlet near Raglan). I have some photos - not v good because of light condition but adequate for ID purpose. No white plume (of breeding males), but other features clear. John Clark
