At a park in Swindon, parakeets were spotted

those birds

At a well-liked rural park, a rare species of bird has been seen.

Rose-ringed parakeets are native to Africa and south Asia, but they have been using tree nesting sites at Coate Water Park in Swindon.

About 50 years ago, some birds from a private collection are believed to have escaped and given rise to the wild British population.

Since then, the birds have started to colonize the M4 corridor.

According to the Local Democracy Reporting Service, while many people are enchanted by their vivid green appearance and raucous squeaky call, others worry that the non-native species may harm the chances of native birds.

We are aware of the birds' nesting, and we will keep an eye on them to make sure they don't harm any of our native species in the park, according to councillor Matty Courtliff of Swindon Borough Council.

We won't stop them from nesting as usual because we don't currently anticipate that they will cause any issues.

To ensure that these and other birds are not disturbed while nesting, the grounds and ranger team has modified their grounds maintenance schedule. ".

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) opposes a parakeet cull at the moment but thinks it's crucial to keep an eye on their population growth.
