Parakeet year-tick

For the second year running an afternoon in the away end at Craven Cottage proved irresistible. Excellent tickets and a slightly less B-string Liverpool team than last year ensured an, embarrassingly, easy 2-0 win and an entertaining day out for all. Also bagged Ring-necked Parakeet between Putney Bridge and the ground and got Mallard, Woodpigeon and Feral Dove on my 'birds seen whilst watching Liverpool beat Fulham' list. Best bird of the day, however, was the Woodcock which flew out of Prince Edwards' gaff and over the car near Bagshot. Second best bird of the day were the Snipe at Barnes Station pointing you in the direction of the London Wetland Centre.
