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

Have had parakeets flying over in the city a couple of mornings this week at ~0830 (well, University of Manchester, near the catholic church on Oxford Road). Only heard them the first time, but the second time saw it was a pair bombing across, I think going roughly South-East.

A work colleague informed me that every night this week at dusk he's seen a pair of ring necked Parakeets fly over his house out of Leverhulme Park in Bolton.
