Observation - Probable Pheasant - UK and Ireland. Description: Feathers from some predator's meal, seen on my allotment. But who dunnit? Pheasant would be very big capture for a Sparrowhawk. But we do have many Red Kites and Buzzards in the area. Would a Fox have been more messy -there were no signs of the carcas
