Wild ring-necked parakeets are becoming ever more prominent in the Black Country.

It is reported that the cheeky bird's vivid colours can be spotted in almost every county in Great Britain. And whether you love them or hate them, it's hard to deny their antics are a joy to watch.

Wendy Abbey, of Forest Road, Dudley, sent in this colourful image of the pretty birdie, which can be seen spotted around the area playing in trees and raiding bird feeders.
