Wednesday 3rd August 2016

Request for Information
Has anyone seen any parakeet sp. in their gardens in the Newcastle-under-Lyme / Maybank / Wolstanton / Bradwell areas and not reported then? There has been a sighting recently of a possible family party and so they may have bred close by. Have you heard anything maybe from a non birder? Get in touch please if you have. Thanks
