Phil,
Have seen a rise in numbers here in Flixton, but have been seriously ill since May, so have had to curb all birding activities except the garden, had 13 over last week.
I havent sussed out where they are roosting.
They are on William Wroe early doors most mornings, but I hear them coming in at about 0430-0500 and they seem to come from St Michaels Church or beyond, Flixton House had several in the trees on Saturday when the bee garden was opened.

Personally I thought they were roosting down Duttons Pond as thats were I had seen them back in May during a couple of evenng mooches.

My consultant has now advised me to get back out and about, so I will find where they roost eventually..lol...

FYI a yellow one has been seen around Trafford FC/ Chassen Park area, a couple of months back, i have only seen Green ones..

Saturday, August 4th...8-30PM.

Walking down Ambleside Road, I saw and heard c10 flying west possibly towards Flixton Park ( Flixton Road fields ). Possible night roost in that direction, I presume.

One over the field adjacent to Whitebeam Close, Timperley today.
Within a stones throw of the Greater Manchester boundary - on 27th, one was being chased by another past the Swan With Two Nicks pub by the River Bollin. Think the chasing bird might have been a juv, it had a shorter tail or summat but it was all over in a flash.

One over my Bury garden. The first. Interesting to see a carrion crow try to see it off. Half hour later it landed in the elm and a magpie flew at it. The parakeet fought back!

I had a sole Parakeet flying over Rusholme about an hour before sunset in the direction of Moss Side/Hulme on Saturday 10th March .  It looked quite large and thought could it be an Alexandrine Parakeet?  Sadly it did not call.
