Note – single birds were also mentioned in the bird sightings blog in 2015 and 2017, and another 3 in 2015 recorded via the BTO into the NBN. These were not reported to the bird recorder, and so did not get into the bird reports. They were all presumed to be local escapes as there are no established populations in Wales yet (2018 Welsh bird report).

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.
