Rose-ringed Parakeet

Although we’ve seen them in the UK on many occasions, we have never been quite so close to Rose-ringed Parakeets as we were on the terrace of our hotel in Cascais, Portugal. A few parakeets would visit the palm trees next to the terrace, attracted by the palm nuts, most evenings around 5pm ….just as we were starting to relax with a cool beer.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
