I heard a strange and new bird song in my neighbours garden last week and quickly viwed this Ring-necked Parakeet perched in a tree. I quickly grabbed the camera and took a couple of images before it flew off. These birds are now very widespread in the South East of England and seem to be spreading out all over the country. I have seen several in the area in recent years and the first time I saw them I couldn't quite believe it. Whilst they are a joy to see they are very noisy and they are reported to be quite aggressive on bird feeders. I do hope that these birds don't settle to close to home as this one made quite a racket and could disturb my early morning slumber.
