Observation details

*beyond property boundary*. First heard distinctive "ku-kuk" call from E of reach 4 at 0605, from old sewage pond area. Heard again at 0608, 0610, 0612, 0614, 0617, 0620, 0622, 0624, 0626, 0629, 0630, 0632, 0634, 0637, 0638, 0640, 0642, 0645, 0650, 0651, and 0654, at which point I continued to hear it for at least a few more minutes but stopped noting each time. Seemed to be calling from generally the same spot, near the dense, leafing out willow thicket in the E part of the sewage pond area. Finally spotted the pheasant at 0637 as it called again, on the berm dividing the sewage pond area, maybe 20 m W of the dense willows. It was still visible on the berm, in more or less the same spot, until at least 0655. Did not hear or see it on the return. Notable consistency of calling. Adult male spotted incidentally while driving in for a survey on 20 Jan 2018, in the S part of the sewage pond area; this is my only other sighting so far, and the first on an official survey.
