Pheasant at Castle Hill

Weird! Never expected to see a pheasant couple on top of coastal cliffs. First I saw the male...

... and when I walked on, suddenly a female pheasant rushed off from the long grasses, making it look like she ran away from her nest. Which made me walk away quickly and let her get back to the spot (where her nest may be). Anyway, very odd place for a pheasant to nest, I think!

The walk was lovely as usual... I'm surrounded by beauty.

The obligatory puppy photo from the walk:

...and a couple of butterflies - a Small White, or a Large White (not sure which).

...and a Gatekeeper, a ubiquitous butterfly, at least in these areas.
