Ah, I thought
I heard parakeets the other day (it would make sense that they're in Tabard Square, as that's the approximate direction I heard them from. I'm afraid my reaction was "oh no!" too. If you're walking around somewhere like Richmond Park all you can hear is their incessant squawking.
Lots of lovely bird song here (Merrick Square
). Recently have been hearing a song thrush and a greater spotted woodpecker, as well as the usual blackbirds, robins, wrens, great and blue tits. Also I saw a jay in the garden on Saturday, which was pretty exciting.
Has anyone seen a nuthatch around here? It strikes me as somewhere that they might reside.
