In reply to Seaman:
Wendy S said:Very rare to see these Parakeets here up in North Yorkshire. As they are not a UK native I do have mixed feelings about them as their presence is quite controversial as they take over nest sites from native birds. Nice photo despite that though and not a bird we see much of on the forum.
I'm with you Pete, mixed feelings regarding parakeets not being a native species.
