Rose-Ringed Parakeet

This morning five of us made a trip down to Plymouth to look for some Rose-Ringed Parakeet that have been seen around the central park area  , we stopped off first at the north end of the River Plym to look for a Glaucous Gull that has been seen around there but we had no luck with it today ! but we did se a male and female Mandarin Duck and a Common Sandpiper .
We then went on to Central Park to look for the Parakeets without a lot of luck at first so we made our way down towards the Ford Park Cemetery again without much luck but I did manage to see 2 fly over birds , we then went back to where we had started from and would you believe it we heard the Parakeets calling from close by and after a bit of searching we found 4 birds sat right out in the open , a Devon first for me at last !!
