There are about 75.000!!! IRN they cause huge losses.
A fruit farm near London was devestated last year by them.
They caused £4,000 worth of damage!
but the birds suffered last winter and numbers are reduced this year.
I think we introduced them, they're here, so we have to live with it.
Life's tough enough as it is! without us killing them off.
I'd love to see them living near me.
My Aunt lived near London and they used to invade their pear tree every year.
My uncle had an aviary full of Budgies.
Maybe thats where I get it from!?
