08/03/2016Pheasant Survey

The Department of the Environment is carrying out a survey of Jersey's pheasants to find out more about the birds and understand their impact on local agriculture and wildlife. For more details please view the  States of Jersey website

Charmaine Rice, a student from the University of Kent, is working with the Department of the Environment and the Jersey Biodiversity Centre, along with local volunteers, on a one-year project.  

The aim of the project is to find out where pheasants live in Jersey, what the population size is and their local impact, including their effect on farmland, and the scale of their impact on local wildlife such as lizards and toads.

At this time of year you can hear the male pheasants crowing to establish their territories and attract females. You may notice them more as they perform wing whirring displays, strut around to impress the females and square up to other males to defend their patch. The females can begin nesting as early as mid-March and lay clutches of up to 15 eggs.

Pheasants are not native to Jersey and were first introduced in the 1800s, but at that time did not successfully breed. Other attempts to establish a population were made in the 1950s when it is thought they started to breed in the wild in small numbers. By the 1980s due to captive breeding and further introductions, pheasants grew in numbers and are now common in Jersey's countryside.        

The project's findings will be used to help the department decide how pheasants should be managed in the future and what their legal status should be.

You can take part in the survey by completing the online questionnaire  

Or to report their sighting of pheasants across the island to the Jersey Biodiversity Centre (JBC) click here

If you find a dead pheasant Charmaine would like to hear about it and can be contacted at  c.rice@gov.je  or telephone 07797810987.
