Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus)
Although this colourful and handsome bird is Britain's most widespread game bird, it is not a native. The pheasant's native home is in Asia, from the Caucasus eastwards to China. Its eating qualities were appreciated as long ago as the Middle Ages when it was first introduced.
