Reports like this occur frequently if not regularly (depending on what
those two words mean in your head) around most Australian cities. I
doubt that one more is the start of another population of this species.

9:05 am, 8th July 2011: at least one (escaped) Rose-ringed/Ring-necked
Parakeet Psittacula krameri flying southeast, Leichhardt, Sydney, NSW.
(Note: I did not see the bird but heard a series of about 15 of its
diagnostic calls. Therefore I was able to estimate the direction of its
flight. However, I cannot rule out that there were more than one bird -
"at least one"). Hope that this is not the start of another population
of this species.
