Small Tortoiseshell 
The Small Tortoiseshell is one of our most-familiar butterflies, appearing in gardens throughout the British Isles. Unfortunately, this butterfly has suffered a worrying decline, especially in the south, over the last few years. This butterfly has always fluctuated in numbers, but the cause of the most-recent decline is not yet known. This is one of our most widespread butterflies, occurring throughout the British Isles, including Orkney and Shetland.

Woodpigeon
The UK’s largest and commonest pigeon, it is largely grey with a white neck patch and white wing patches, clearly visible in flight. Although shy in the countryside it can be tame and approachable in towns and cities. Its cooing call is a familiar sound in woodlands as is the loud clatter of its wings when it flies away.

PHEASANT
Phasianus colchicusBy Ray Wilson
A large, long-tailed gamebird. Males have rich chestnut, golden-brown and black markings on body and tail, with a dark green head and red face wattling. Females are mottled with paler brown and black. They were introduced to the UK long ago and more recent introductions have brought in a variety of races and breeds for sport shooting.
Pheasants can be seen all year round across most of the UK, apart from the far north and west of Scotland. They are least common in upland and urban areas, usually being seen in the open countryside near woodland edges, copses and hedgerows.
