Hole sweet home


Photo Information
Local ring-necked parakeet seems quite pleased with 2015 nesting hole. Absence of pink/black neck rings suggests this is Mrs Parakeet. Taken with K-5 IIs and DA300 in (predictably) Kelsey Park, Beckenham.

Great shot Simon. Still can't believe these exotic birds breed happily in England (although we don't get any in the West.)
Best wishes,

Andrew

Lovely shot, beautiful quality; been trying to get same in a local Park in Swansea where we also have a resident ring-necked. Hope I can do as well as you when I get the chance

They are also quite common in North London parks as well nowadays and I've heard reports of one having been seen as far west as Newbury - so keep a watch out Andrew !

Best regards
Peter
