We usually do very well ' scrumping' apples from neighbour Myra's tree where it overhangs our garden. It's a cider apple 'Katy' but works very well in crumbles and apple cakes. This year however we have competition from the ring-necked parakeets!
Yesterday evening there were at least 7 of them scoffing ( and their table manners are atrocious!)
The view from Ian's office is mainly of apple cores! You do have to admire their acrobatics and their obviously happy chirpings makes a change from their raucous squawking .
