Parakeets on Hampstead Heath - LindaH - Creative Commons
Walking on Hampstead Heath this afternoon, the raucous, high pitched shrieks of ring-necked parakeets were the defining sound.
There were islands of ice on the ponds - some of the footpaths were awash with mud - not the sort of weather you associate with parrots.
If globalisation has taken Coca Cola to every corner of the earth, the parakeets seems to be part of the couterflow. And to be honest, I prefer the parakeets.
