Tyldesley loop line and environs

Martyn, are you sure it wasn't just attracted by your peg leg, eye patch and dubloons?

Tyldesley General Environs

A quick walk down the old Tyldesley Loopline near my house this evening produced the following birds:

3 Chiffchaffs singing and two seen
1 very vocal Wren
2 Robins proclaiming their territory
3 Blackbirds
1 Goldfinch
2 Magpies
2 Great Tits
2 Blue Tits
1 Carrion Crow over
Several Gulls over
Numerous Woodpigeons

But the surprise of the evening was a green coloured Parrot or Macaw with a yellow and reddish underbelly and a greyish head. It was tame and ringed and it flew down on to my back whilst I was photographing it. I walked with it on my back for a few hundred metres but it flew off when I opened my car door. Anyone know what this might be and if I should I report if somewhere? There will be pictures on my blog tomorrow night (address below).
