Birds can be observed from specially made sheds with small windows so ‘twitchers’ can look out and observe these wonderful birds. These buildings are normally made in sizes from 8X7 and larger. There are many game birds in this country which you are unlikely to see in your garden such as grouse and pheasants. These are regularly shot as a sport but are eaten as well. Pheasants are quite large game birds and can be seem around farmland in Britain whereas grouse would normally only be found on moorland.
Whilst it is nice to observe these birds in their natural habitat an elderly man has had to use his garden shed as a make shift defence against an aggressive pheasant which has been attacking him on a regular basis. The pheasant from a neighbouring field has been chasing 72 year old John Tucker around his garden.
Mr Tucker resorted to using his shed as a makeshift prison for a pheasant that attacks him on a regular basis. The use of its claws, beak and wings make this a very nasty experience for the harassed retired ornithologist. His leisure time in his garden has been curtailed as he has to wear strong gardening gloves and carry a stick to protect himself.
A plan has evolved and when he wants to use his garden then his shed becomes a prison for this bird. Mr Tucker has learnt how to trap the bird so that he can enjoy his garden. When he has finished for the day he lets the bird go. I think if it was me he would be on my dinner table and this would stop its game once and for all.
Mr Tucker, who hobby is the study and observation of birds was mystified as to why this bird attacks him as he has never known anything like this before. And he does know a lot about birds. His wife is also subjected to these attacks and the pheasant’s aggression.
Amazingly there are 35 different varieties of pheasants in this country and which are shot for sport. At least they are eaten and, in fact, are considered a delicacy by many people. But I don’t think many people would have to resort to their garden shed for a bit of peace.
