Ring Necked closed?

A number of people have commented on the blog over the last few months regarding the growing Ring Necked Parakeet population in South Liverpool.......sorry for not replying to the posts, as I had let the blog slide slightly (you may have noticed!); but a recent article on the feral population in the UK has been published which reveals the negative impact of this species on other native passerines.......I have to admit I quite liked the idea of them flying around our local parks but after reading this maybe I will have to revise this notion!
