What those London parrots are really squawking

London parrot

I first came across the feral parrakeets of London growing up in Teddington. The park keeper of Bushy Park referred to them as, “those damned parrots”, as though they were some kind of cursed pirate parrots.

But now they are everywhere. Perhaps they always were. I think they’re beautiful, in a menacing sort of way. Where DID they come from, does anyone know for sure?
