A dog walker has claimed to have seen a kestrel and parrot sitting together in Wisbech.

Joanne Barnes spotted the unusual pairing sitting on a electricity wire along the River Nene, near the marina, while walking her dog earlier today (Wednesday, September 16).

Mrs Barnes, of The Chase, says her neighbour has also spotted the pair in recent weeks.

She said: “They were sitting side by side. My neighbour had seen them two to three weeks ago. The parrot is bigger than the kestrel. They flew off together.”
