"Budgie" what next? Anyone lost their pet?

I thought I'd  found a Ring-necked Parakeet when I saw a flash of green and yellow when I drove up my drive but it turned out to be the Budgie in the photos below which I think may be a "Clearwing" variant. As I type it's feeding on the ground with the Tree and House Sparrows for the second day and attempts to find out if a neighbour is missing their pet have failed so far.

The other green bird below is one of three Green Woodpeckers which flew over my head in a group but weren't seen until they'd got out of range.

The two Redshanks were at Inchcape Park, Arbroath along with  Purple Sandpipers, Turnstones but no Sandwich Terns yet. A single Shag with the green darvic ring AIR was on the breakwater and reported to the ringers.
