Rose-ringed Parakeet

By dewie    
While I was revising for my gcses last spring/summer, I could not spend much time out with the camera, so took whatever chances came my way at home. When I was working outside one day, this Parakeet landed in the apple tree at the bottom of my garden. I grabbed my camera from the table and took a load of images.

I was particlarly pleased that this was taken in my garden as it has achieved a highly commended in the BWPA Young category 2011! Grin

Hope you like it

Thanks - yes in London! They are starting to colonise the UK, but are now a very common sight in London.
