Has anyone lost a small parakeet or budgie? There is one perched on the tenth floor balcony of my building on Mill Street. It is whitish with plack stripes on its wings and has a small credt on its head, and a very loud cry!
There are lots of parakeets all over London. They're mostly in the West. I once saw two flocks of 20-30 birds converge over a friend's garden in Kingston, but I've seen them as far North as Hampstead Heath and as far East as Oxleas Wood (near Eltham).
The London parakeets are surprisingly large green birds with a characteristic squawk.
We had a small flock of green parakeets in the school playground in New Cross earlier this year. I'd heard about these flocks, but didn't realise they were such big birds. Won't be long before they hit the city now that there are more green spaces.
