Ring-Necked Parakeet

Saw this Ring-Necked Parakeet in the middle of Exeter today, by the Blackboy Road roundabout. It was alone and according to a lady in a shop opposite, it has been around for a couple of weeks. I would be interested to know if this may be a feral one (blown west from the east)... or just a lone escapee. The photographs were taken by my husband who was with me.
