Several people have messaged this week saying they’ve spotted this unusually coloured bird in Blantyre this week.
The latest sighting was this evening Tuesday 19 April 2020 around 6pm at South View. Not sure if it escaped from somewhere. A local woman told us, “I went out and shook a bag of bird seed but it stayed up in the tree. It flew away after about 10 minutes.”
We understand there are some wild parakeets in the Glasgow area, so it may not be a pet. Just to make others aware.
