My blog is mostly about wildlife, particularly birds, walking, days out, all growing things and anything else that comes to mind.

Rose-ringed Parakeet loss of feathers
I was somewhat surprised to see this rather sorry looking Parakeet in the garden in the last couple of days. In all the time I've watched them in, and around, the garden (about 15 years +) I've never seen this before.
It could be some sort of disease as I'm sure it can't be moulting - not to this extent of feather loss.
If anyone has any ideas as to what is happening, I'd be pleased to have your views.

For me there's nothing better than the great outdoors and escaping into
it as often as I can; even if it's only a walk very locally. I love the
sea and water in any form. There's something magical about reflections
in very still water.
