ring-necked parakeet request


I'm meeting a friend in London shortly and he has expressed a desire to see a Ring-necked Parakeet.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to which of the Central London parks is likely to be our best bet? I'm guessing St James, but I'm open to persuasion.

Thanks in advance,

My first was in Bushy Park, but that was in the 1980s and it might be less reliable now. Anyway, good luck.

I used to see them in London Fields, Hackney when I worked there a few years back.

I saw a load of ring-necked parakeets in Regents park in November 2017.
