Dont beg, it's undignified... Michael, parakeets dont mate with armadillos, thats the end of it! - Inside I'm Dancing (2004) (never heard of it but I like the quote!)
King Kong.. oops, sorry, M who lives opposite, has a large colony of parakeets living in a large willow tree right up against the new extension he's building. They've obviously sussed out that he's going to redevelop their home because they've been looking around the neighbourhood and have found just what they want at the end of my garden. They've spent the last few days looking it over, talking about it in very loud voices and now I think they've moved in. The cat obviously doesn't scare them (and I'm not surprised, seeing as they go round in gangs and I wouldn't care to make them cross) so they're busy moving their stuff from Willow Wonderland to Sycamore Shack.
I can see that peace and quiet on a sunny afternoon is now not an option.
