Monk Parakeets in Hertfordshire

Stan Ames recently had this pair of Monk Parakeets visit his garden feeder in Harpendon. The species' has recently been targetted by Defra, so much so that the population in Borehamwood is now down to a paltry 19 individuals. It has come to my attention that the Hertfordshire Bird Club actually supports this controversial cull so to ensure the continued survival of this species in the UK countryside, be careful not to submit any data nor provide the exact whereabouts of Monk Parakeets you are lucky to come across.
