Aye excellent photos, is the colony of feral Green Parakeets still living at Pennington Flash, it was thought that a couple had either escaped from an aviary or had been deliberately released, anyhow they thrived by eating the seed put out by the wardens for the wild birds and actually bred, haven't heard anything about them lately though so maybe the last couple of very cold winters saw them off.

There is a mention of them being seen visiting the peanut feeders at Pennington Flash on the RSPB website.
