Hi Folks

There was some discussion recently about some introduced species and whether 
they were considered tickable or not.

It got me thinking about a sighting of Peafowl on Rottnest Island in August 

I believe at one stage there was a self sustaining population there. Then some 
time ago all the females were removed to stop them from breeding. Does anyone 
know whether this is correct and when the females were removed?

I also noted seeing Common Pheasant there. Can anyone give me any info 
regarding there population there please?
