I had this twig perfectly composed and in focus and then this green birdy thing photo-bombed it.

lol Tony, is this little parakeet in your garden ?
No, it was on my local patch. They've discovered the feeding area behind the hide.
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
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'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.
