Ring-necked Parakeet – 1994

Psittacula krameriParacît torchogFeral visitor

Single birds were seen in gardens at Newport on 30 January 1988 (A.P.R. East) and Crundale on 20 March 1988 (J.E. Donovan). The origin of these birds is uncertain. They may have been escapes or may have arrived due to expansion of the feral population established in south-east England. They are included here to keep the record complete and perhaps permit further evaluation by those whose task it will be to write the next Pembrokeshire avifauna.
