Purple Haze – revisited.

Back in February I posted some pictures of Parakeets in one of the parks in town (Southampton).

Today between heavy rain showers I decided as the leaves were thining on the trees to go back and see if the Parakeets were still about, before I reached the park I could hear them calling and flying through the trees. I spotted over 6 birds today – earlier in the year there was just a pair so it looks as if they successfully bred in the spring. Even though we are outside the breeding season one bird was showing a real interest in a nest hole this morning so hopefully the Southampton population will increase further next year.

  1. The way they got to the UK and increased in population may be true or just a story someone made up. They are beautiful birds and I enjoyed your photos. I guess some people may consider them invasive pests.
