Yes, these bird are indeed very invasive, and they seem gradually to invade 
almost all of Southern and central Europe. They are common birds many places in 
the Netherlands by now, and of course they are developing to be a pest in 
England. Last September 2010 I took part in an amphipod conference in Sevilla, 
Spain, and this septmber in another amphipod eeting in Palermo, Sicily, Italy, 
and both places the parks were full of Ring-necked Parakeets, contrary to what 
my field guiide mapped.
