We are delighted to announce the launch of The Parakeeting of London: An Adventure in Gonzo Ornithology, published by Paradise Road.
The skies of London have been taken over by bright green parakeets.
Did Jimi Hendrix release them in 1968? Did they escape from a set during the filming of The African Queen? Are they anything to do with climate change? And, most importantly, are they here to stay?
In The Parakeeting of London, writer Nick Hunt and photographer Tim Mitchell – self-declared gonzo ornithologists – track the progress of the parakeets from park to cemetery to riverbank, meeting Londoners from all walks of life who share their thoughts, opinions and theories on these incongruous avian invaders.
We recommend you buy the book directly from the publisher, or – even better – order it from your local independent bookshop. The gonzo ornithologists will be doing a series of events during 2019 to promote the book, so watch this space!
