Wow, do they often come up the river that far?

Big drama on Barry Road just now... I was quietly sipping my coffee when I heard a parakeet squawk and a louder squawk than usual. All of a sudden, the parakeet came hurtling towards my back window, closely pursued by a sparrowhawk. The hawk must have realised it was going too fast to stop in time and wheeled away at the last second, but the parakeet banged straight into the window. I feared the worst, but it was only briefly stunned. After a minute or two it woke up, shook its feathers, squawked angrily at me ("It wasn't my fault, mate!") and flew off. A lucky escape.
