I found a rather sweet feather in Richmond Park yesterday. With such a vibrant green colour it is clear which species it came from - a Ring Necked Parakeet! These birds are alien to the UK, accidentally introduced through escaped pets, and the majority of the British ones live in the South-East of England. Although I’ve found a few feathers in the past, I’ve yet to find any more than that - I would love to see the skull of one!

1. Love by Jana Kramer

I still believe in shooting stars
I still believe in midnight drives
And butterflies you get
Right before you kiss for the very first time

2. Turn It Off by Paramore

I wanna know what it’d be like
To find perfection in my pride
To see nothing in the light
But turn it off in all my spite

3. Talking Dreams by Echosmith

This is a short race, this is a short life
Let’s run, not walk, through this beautiful life
This is a good day, this is a good sign
You’ve got green eyes and I’ve got sunrise

4. 27 by Fall Out Boy

And it’s kind of funny
The way we’re wearing anchors on our shirts
When being anchored or bored
Just feels like a curse

5. Empty Gold by Halsey

Feel like we’ve been falling down
Like these autumn leaves.
But baby don’t let winter come,
Don’t let our hearts freeze

6. Still Breathing by Mayday Parade

Promise me some dignity
If I were to stand and die here
‘Cause my heart is somewhere else
It’s a pain I’ve never felt

7. Sober by P!nk

I don’t wanna be the girl who has to fill the silence
The quiet scares me 'cause it screams the truth
Please don’t tell me that we had that conversation
I won’t remember, save your breath, 'cause what’s the use?

8. Over My Head by The Fray

It’s coming down to nothing more than apathy
I’d rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who’s still standing when it clears

9. 405 by This Wild Life

I’m jealous of the life you’re living
I never made the best decisions
I learn the hard way or not at all
I wouldn’t answer when you called

10. Everybody by Ingrid Michaelson

Happy is the heart that still feels pain
Darkness drains and light will come again
Swing open up your chest and let it in
Just let the love, love, love begin
