The Green Ring-Necked Parakeets have been resident in Surrey for some years but this is the first time I have seen them in our neck of the woods in NE Surrey.
I first spotted them on a next door-but-one neighbour's tree on Armistice Day
How does the song go?
Ten Green Parrots Sitting in a Tree!
More recently in the next door neighbour's tree eating the fruit there.
But today they ventured into our garden.
They do look exotic but I hope they don't discourage our abundance of native species.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
