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!
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
