Just had a site search and there doesn't seem to be a photobombing thread...until now.

Jim, Wonderful Kite photo.
Simon M, Thanks, 2 interesting articles.
They are Hazel, and not far away too and yes we had some blue skies too.
nice one Jim, what cracking birds to see and a blue sky too :)
One at a time please you don't all have to jump in I'm here for a while.
I've sent you a private message with the details of a DEFRA study.
Everyone else: Please keep the photo-bombing photos coming, really enjoying this thread.
Ring Necked Parakeets are sweet and entertaining but also a concern for the owners of vineyards. The current harvest in England is one of the best ever and climate change promises more good harvests to come, provided that various problems including the Parakeets do not ruin future harvests. I wonder what tactics are used to deal with the birds--by netting off acres of vines? Anyone know?
I know folk who already have them on their local patch and gardens are not always happy to see them but I can't help but smile when I see these noisy, tropical looking parakeets - will proably change my mind like I did with Grey Squirrels once they reach my Cheshire garden lol
