Nice capture of the bird amongst the grass. But I wonder if you've just missed nailing the focus? The bottom of the neck and the back of the body are perfect, but the eye and indeed the rest of the head, seem a bit soft.

I expect it was running away, birds do that when they see a camera

A wild pheasant is one of the things I haven't managed to capture yet (never reacted quickly enough even if I have had a camera with me), so well done for that.
