A mystery visitor is ruffling feathers in Huddersfield.
It’s a bright green parakeet which is flying among the trees in Beaumont Park.
Photographer Mick Shaw, who is a member of the park’s photographic club, managed to get a couple of shots of the bird.
Local resident Simon Parkin said: “Over the last few days we have seen a green parakeet flying around the Longden Avenue and Woodside Road areas of Beaumont Park.
“People have told us there were sightings of the bird up to three months ago and it seems likely it has been owned by someone in the area and may have flown away”.
The RSPB say that the UK does have a population of some 8,000 pairs of ring-necked parakeets which are bright green in colour and have a red beak.
They tend to live in the south-east, around Surrey, Kent and Sussex and live on fruit, berries, nuts and seeds.
