So what is a south-west Londoner to do on a sunny March afternoon? Why, they go to Richmond Park for a walk around the ponds.
We weren't the only transplanted Londoners there, as the feral parakeets were taking the opportunity to noisily begin their mating season. I took a photograph of a pair necking in a tree as we walked through a small wood near Pen Ponds.
There's something alien about seeing a parrot in London, but they're certainly colourful.
