Life at Manor Courtyard is usually calm and uneventful. It is a beautiful place. And good, we feel, for unraveling data, reflecting on discussion groups and putting our minds to thoughtful analysis. We notice the seasons acutely – it being a working farm. And of course, we enjoy visits from Lottie the working farm dog when she pops in for a biscuit…or two.
But nothing can prepare you for an angry pheasant like the one that takes up residence in the courtyard each spring. This is the Rob Titchener of pheasants: good looking to the unsuspecting visitor – but if he can’t control you…he’ll break you. We carry long umbrellas to ward away his vicious attacks, and sensible shoes for the dash from the car to the safety of the office.
