Welsh wildlife


We had a quick spin around the local countryside yesterday afternoon and came across at least half a dozen pheasants. For once, I managed to get a reasonable photo of one of them, but only a rear view!

I have a recipe from the book Like Water For Chocolate for Quail in rose petal sauce, I bet it would work for Pheasant.

My mate ran over a pheasant by accident once. I got out of the passenger side of the car, ran back and picked it up off the road. "What you going to do with that" he asked.

"I'm going to pluck it, gut it then eat it".
I sat in the garden and started to pluck for all I was worth.
There was plucking feathers all over the place. Tiny little ones, in my ears, up my nose, in my hair - millions of them.

I couldn't face gutting it - so I went down to the butchers and he did it for me. Me and my Dad had superb butties for work for the next week.....
