Parakeets have crossed the Thamses and you now see reports of them in West Hertfordshire for instance.
I was interested to read that there are parakeets seen at the RSPB's Sandwell Valley reserve near Lichfield
Chris Edwards from the RSPB’s Sandwell Valley nature reserve said:
We know there are around three of four parakeets nesting in the area. Not actually on the nature reserve but round about. People are starting to spot them in their back gardens.
