Published sightings for the week ending 25 Sep 2011.

Sat 24 Sep Common Pheasant Midlands Highway, near large dams north of Symmonds Plains Raceway
Single male bird feeding along highway verge, just out of "shelterbelt" trees which divide road from large water storage dams. Pretty sure there were no houses nearby, so possibly an escapee, but more likely a wild (feral) bird??
