An exciting sighting

Last week, wild parrots came to our ‘back yard’!

Wild ring-necked parakeets have become increasingly common in the South East of England.  I first saw them in the summer, in a park about 5 miles away.  Being a tropical bird, they look somewhat out of place in England, particularly in urban areas.

Despite their increasing numbers, it was still a surprise to see bright, flashes of green whizz by the window.  Four ring-necked parakeets flew by, circled & landed on the tree directly opposite my window.  They were there long enough for me to take some photos & marvel in the first sighting of them so close to home.

They were later joined by a big, black bird that I initially thought was a crow but on checking the photos, decided it was likely a big blackbird.

 

How did Bezukhov, Dalai & the newbies react?  They noticed the flashes of green go past the window but otherwise just carried on with whatever they were doing, not grasping the rarity of the event!

    Oh wow! Let’s hope we soon have flocks of cockatoos in the south of England!
