Whose a pretty boy then?

A trip to Flint Castle to photograph burnett moths turned into something a little more unusual for Jeff Cohen.

Walking back to his car, Jeff was amazed to see what he believes to be a colourful, red rumped parakeet perched up in the trees - not your average species for North Wales.

These birds originate from Australia so migration is unlikely! It's obviously escaped from somewhere, so hopefully we can reunite bird with owner soon or perhaps it's been living in the wild for some time?

Could North Wales become home to a new kind of exotic/local hybrid?

Escaped parakeets are already breeding successfully in parts of London and the surrounding areas.
