RING-NECKED PARAKEET and male BLACKCAP in birder's garden in Arlesey

Thought I'd share some media i've captured of two unusual garden visitors in north Arlesey. The two images linked are of a Ring necked Parakeet that seems now to be resident in the area. I've seen/heard it flying around most days since summer though this is the first time i've seen it land in my garden.

The youtube link is a video of a male Blackcap that has been a daily visitor since I put up the bird table a month ago. It usually visits 2/3 times a day. John
