Never ever seen one in the flesh.

Driving home from shooting today, there it was on the verge just minding its own business :)

I believe it was a leucistic pheasant as opposed to albino, however the only real way to tell is the eyes, black for the former and pink for the latter. The very dark/black ones are usually melanistic pheasants. Christel told the head keeper at our shoot about it and showed him the picture yesterday, he replied that he would find one for the coming season, call it Christel and fine anyone who shot it a hundred pounds :)
