The sequence is of a majestic male Common Pheasant attracted to the corpse of another (not so majestic) male CP. I was hoping to shoot Red Kite and/or Common Buzzard at the road kill corpse.
The male CP approached the corpse slowly and in a manner of display towards a female walked slowly clockwise then anti clockwise around the corpse before approaching it.
After close examination it pecked twice at the head of corpse, walked alongside the corpse and stopped, erect, stared at the corpse then departed.
I have seen and photographed this on 2 separate previous occasions involving the corpse of a female and a male CP. On each occasion the male copulated with the corpses.
