London Parakeets.

A flying visit to Hampton court for a Parkrun on Saturday.

The whole park was full of Parakeets in every tree, it was like running around a set from an early Tarzan film..

A great sound..

Also: While driving through Oxford on the M40 I saw seven (7) Red kites a wonderful site.
