Ring Necked Parakeet

Not a great shot, but the best of a bad bunch; hand-held D70 at 200mm, desperately pointing up into the trees! This is an exotic addition to London's fauna, seen in Beckenham Place Park; I had never glimpsed one of these before, although I did know they had settled in the south-east in numbers. Weirdly, I saw a couple more just days later over Regent's Park; didn't manage to get a snap that time though.
