22nd March 2011

A short visit today found a male Pheasant on the island, and although it is not a truly a wild species it is still quite exciting as it is probably the first ever seen here although Pheasants have often in the past been heard calling from the Red Rocks area in calm weather.
There were 2 Merlins present, at least one of which was a female type, and a Little Egret on the shore near the spartina. A Raven flew over the island travelling west.
