Yes I now know what they sound like, I think they make most of the sound when they start to fly. Maybe that's why you spot them mostly in air, also they are hard to see in the trees because they are green lol.

It looks like we have a small community of casual Twitchers here at ATS....

Here is a good link for images of Parrots/Parakeets:


On a trip to Australia, when I was a youngster, I was in awe of the birds that flew wild in and around the Sydney suburbs. Being a bit naive, at first I thought someone had lost there pet Cockatoos, but these were a little to numerous, but my favourite over there was the Crimson Rosella, in the flesh, er...feathers, they are vividly stunning.

Bit a annoyed to see this keeping the Sparrows away from my bird bath this morning.

Wow I am also jealous, nice view you have.

I did some searching on them as well and all green parakeets look alike.

Well it appears your assessment of the parakeets are correct they are in London. So much so that a cull is in the books...poor things.

They should catch the young and sell them to people as pets..such a pretty bird.

I believe that the birds in question are Green Conures. They are a small breed of parrot. This is the link that should clear up any problems with identifying them.

Good Luck.

I would have to disagree, I would have to go with _Pheonix_'s images being an Indian Ring Necked Parakeet - .

Although, as mentioned on the BBC website, there are more than one species that have been spotted over the years.
