Orange fronted parakeet returning to Hawdon

Just saw that 100 OFP will be released into Hawdon valley this year, at least they will be back in the valley after some time.

I think there’s been one or two pairs in the last year or two? But certainly good to see a concerted effort to release them back into the Hawdon.

They certainly seem to be doing well in the Brook with several nests fledging etc.
