In case you hadn't noticed, the skies of London have been taken over by flocks of bright-green parakeets. This is a fact. And the amazing thing is nobody knows how they got here. The Parakeeting of London, writer Nick Hunt and photographer Tim Mitchell - self-declared gonzo ornithologists - track the progress of the parakeets from park to cemetery to riverbank, meeting Londoners from all walks of life who share their thoughts, opinions and theories on these incongruous avian invaders. Did Jimi Hendrix release them in 1968? Did they escape from a set during the filming of The African Queen? Are they anything to do with climate change? And, most importantly, are they here to stay?
