52 Species: Rose-Ringed Parakeet

It’s Wednesday so time for another dose of #wildlifewednesday! Today’s animal is the rose-ringed parakeet, the only naturalised parrot in the UK!

There’s tons of legends as to how these parrots came to be flying wild and free in London - one theory is that they were props in a movie and once filming ended they were set loose. Though I agree with the theory that they are probably the descendants of pets that either escaped or were let loose. Have you seen these beautiful birds in London?

For 2020 I’m taking part in the #52speciesproject, a self led project all about learning more about species you didn’t know a lot about before. I have decided to learn about the wildlife that lives in London!
