Well I think poor old dave the pheasant (phasianus) is no more but his keeper has caught up with you lot thanks to a helpful trail of corn.

With a bit of luck I'll get phasianus in to a sentence without it setting off a filter :lol:

Thanks for having me.

Hello Chris.... i can't help thinking of the ditty....'I'm not a Pheasant Plucker I'm a Pheasant Plucker's Mate and I'm only plucking pheasants 'cos the Pheasant Plucker's late' :oops: :lol: I'm afraid every time I am in the car and see a pheasant I am moved to regale Pete with this tongue-twister. ( It is one of those rare things that isn't easier said than done.)

Gawd glad you don’t live near me or you’d be saying that every few minutes and be getting a wack to shut up :lol:

I already do. :lol:
Surprising few pheasants in our part of Normandy. Though we have had a pair of black ones in the garden. i think there are probably too many predators.

Hello Chris, and welcome.

So you're Daveless, eh? Pity, but no doubt he made a delicious meal for someone. Maybe you'll get Son of Dave next year :thumbsup:

Make his day and do the whole song:

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's son
I'm only plucking pheasants 'till the pheasant plucker comes.

Me husband is a keeper, he's a very busy man
I try to understand him and I help him all I can,
But sometimes in an evening I feel a trifle dim
All alone, I'm plucking pheasants, when I'd rather pluck with him.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's mate
I'm only plucking pheasants 'cos the pheasant plucker's late !

I'm not good at plucking pheasants, at pheasant plucking I get stuck
Though some pheasants find it pleasant I'd rather pluck a duck.
Oh plucking geese is gorgeous, I can pluck a goose with ease
But pheasant plucking's torture because they haven't any grease.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, he has gone out on the tiles
He only plucked one pheasant and I'm sitting here with piles !

You have to pluck them fresh, if it’s fresh they’re not unpleasant,
I knew a man in Dunstable who could pluck a frozen pheasant.
They say the village constable had pheasant plucking sessions
With the vicar on a Sunday ‘tween the first and second lessons.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's mum
I'm only plucking pheasants 'till the pheasant plucker's come.

My good friend Godfrey is most adept, he's really got the knack
He likes to have a pheasant plucked before he hits the sack.
I like to give a helping hand, I gather up the feathers,
It's really all our pheasant plucking keeps us pair together.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's friend
I'm only plucking pheasants as a means unto an end !

My husband's in the forest always banging with his gun
If he could hear me half the time I'm sure that he would run,
For there's fluff in all my crannies, there's feathers up my nose
And I'm itching in the kitchen from my head down to my toes.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's wife
And when we pluck together it's a pheasant plucking life !

Hi Dave and welcome.
Ah yes the Pheasant plucking song.
Have seen some of the Black ones near Kimmeridge, which is a place I like to beach comb eyes only, some great shale fossils, although they crumble away easily.
Good Luck, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Another familiar name joining the gang, great. Sad about Dave but don’t change your pic or I won’t recognise you.
Sounds a bit weird but you know what I mean. Maybe :thumbsup: :roll:
