At lunchtime today we were watching a hen pheasant taking a very keen interest in the beautiful berries of Callicarpa profusion. She spent several minitues jumping up and down trying to knock them to the ground and then gobbled them down as fast as she could. Callicarpa is a lovely shrub at this time of year and will develope a gorgeous leaf colour as the month progresses and not to big, so suitable for a small garden.

A lovely shrub indeed Mary and it looks like you have enough berries above jumping height to continue to enjoy!

It's amazing what efforts the birds will make to forage; we've been watching a large woodpigeon doing a delicate balancing act on our pyracantha lately; normally the blackbirds have it to themselves.

Great photos. It must be just lovEly to have Pheasants in the garden in the first place. And I know Paddy feeds them too! How wonderful. It looks like a beautiful shrub.
