I was wondering if anyone else is being annoyed by the parakeet currently hanging around the Marshalsea Road
area? It shrieks pretty much all the time now, usually kicking off at 2 - 3a.m. but going at it all day. I noticed conversations on lost parakeets, but I think this one is wild. I am also concerned that it is driving away blackbirds, starlings and songbirds.
I may as well admit that I would be more than happy to see it, and it's mates, culled unmercifully. I can only imagine the nightmarish noise pollution that would occur if any more of them set up shop here, in fact the constant shrieking may drive me to take action myself. I wondered if the RSPB or any wildlife organisation planned a cull of these birds at any point?
