Another parakeet sighting! This time by Spannarama on Flickr.
Now looking for an equally good shot of the Blackheath Ferret please.
Scrumping apples from the tree outside!
Not going to win any awards for photography, but you get the idea..
See the incorrectly titled older post The Greenfinch Tree for previous sightings!
Every morning, at about 7am without exception, I see several bright green birds. They’re perched in the trees opposite the Everest Inn. I’ve tried to take photos of them, but my camera phone is rubbish, and they’re too quick. Does anyone know what they are? Domestic parrots that have escaped and gone feral? Greenfinches? Please let me know!

At the weekend my girlfriend spotted a funny-looking bird on Eliot Place, a bit like a robin but all grey apart from an orange tail. Anyway, turns out it was a Black Redstart, and the RSPB reckons there are only 25-73 breeding pairs in the country. Something to look out for, anyway!
