I bumped into Derek and Rupert this afternoon. We decided to have a look for the female Ring-necked Parakeet that has been present in Exmouth for a long time now. We found it almost immediately, in its favourite line of dead trees behind Maer Farm. Derek speculated that the hole in the right of this picture might be a potential nest site, and I suspect he's right, however without a mate it's not going to be terribly useful.The resident Green Woodpecker pair may also have plans for this potential residence - see below.
Redshank - the 'Gut'.
