Good afternoon I'm interested in doing some roost counts of ring-necked parakeets in the Greater Manchester area. Does anyone know of any active roost sites which would be good to do a count? Many thanks, Amy

Mid morning Hall House Woods Leigh.

There are now 2 R N Parakeets doing a right noisy squawk fest for about half hour mid morning - if this is what 2 sounds like I'm not looking forward to them breeding!

Yesterday 25th Sept c. 6pm ish, was surprised to see a tight flock of I'd guess at least 70+ flying northeast over Rossett Ave., Timperley.

By far the most I've seen in the area  but as I live in Wales it may be normal!?..

I was leaving the centre of Manchester yesterday at around 1930 (dusk) and was stationary in traffic whilst travelling south on Princess Parkway (A5103) prior to the junction with Greenheys Lane (the intersection with Asda and Heineken). Within the trees to the east of the A5103 there was a large number of Ring-necked Parakeet. In the short time I was there they then moved, to what I can only assume is a regular roosting site, into the tall trees between the northbound and southbound carriageways at this point. I would estimate in excess of 200 birds, with many short tailed (juvenile) birds. Driving on I could see another flock coming towards the roost site from the Moss Side direction. If anybody lives locally to that location it would be interesting to get a proper count.

Presumably the same bird very noisily low over the garden mid afternoon & returning to Hall House woods Leigh late afternoon.

One heard in Leigh Cemetery mid afternoon & since its only about a quarter of a mile (as the crow flies) from Hall House Woods, I'm assuming it's the same bird from there as I haven't seen or heard it for over a week.

A nice quiet sunday afternoon in the garden was brought to an abrupt end with a tirade of squawking for about half an hour by the Ring-Necked Parakeet in Hall House Woods Leigh - still can't get a pic of it as it's very mobile & well camouflaged in the canopy.

Having not seen or heard the one nearby at Hall House Woods Leigh for nearly 3 weeks I assumed it had either moved on or been predated by the local Peregrines, but then after tea this evening it was heard & seen flying down the Bridgewater canal heading towards Hall House Bridge Leigh.
