Rockbeare, East Devon

Thanks to Facebook I learnt of Rockbeare residents reporting 3 Ring-necked Parrakeet in and around the village.  A large oak tree in parkland at the rear of Cranbrook Veterinary Clinic seems to have been their roost but this came down in recent high winds.  Following a short visit this afternoon I managed to locate one bird very hidden in a cherry tree in Parsons Lane.  Absence of neck markings suggests it's a female.  Thanks to 'Susan W' for helping me with location.
