20/01/2013 Sefton Park

Ring Necked Parakeet: I was asked to go to Sefton Park to do some membership recruitment for the RSPB with the Liverpool group, and I never thought I would get shots of these STUNNING birds.

They have been in Sefton Park for the last 2 years, last year they had 5 individuals but this year they have recorded only this pair.
I was told they were roosting up high in a tree next to the feeders at the back of the tropical green house and after a few minutes of waiting they moved closer to the feeders and then landed to feed on them.

A surprisingly good day!
