    Found a big fat green parrot in my garden.. maybe someone knows what model it is?

    What/who would you contact? They keep seeming to be cutting back on wildlife rescues I know they closed my local one down last year and I dont think RSPCA will take lost pets. Besides someone would need to come out catch the fella.

    Had a couple of African Grays when I was a kid and they where not tame, vicious little suckers. I dont know if this ones tame, no tags on his feet that I can see and he's not trying to make meaningful conversation with me.

    Anyway he seems happy enough at the moment sitting in my plum tree eating me plums ;)

    Of course if anyone fancies one (not for a Sunday roast) your more then welcome to come round and catch the fella. There not cheap!

    There's a very good chance that it's actually a wild parrot. Check out this BBC news article. Of course where I'm living they're all over the place, noisy little blighters.

    We have loads of wild Parakeets in Surrey, you hear the noisy buggars before you see them, they even squawk as they fly over.

    Never even considered it could be a wild one.

    I live in Surrey, never seen a parrot on the loose before.

    brave man!

    Hi nuke,
    That was a very brave photo you took considering the rich fruit diet the little swine is obviously enjoying! Doesn't look like a parrot though, otherwise might be worth as much as parrot.co.uk !
    It looks like a parakeet or something, obviously enjoying the weather in balmy surrey. Not sure how they can afford a property round there though! :mrgreen:

    Don't let it leave the area - it's probably a spy employed by another dropcatcher. Clearly not a very good spy...

    what a thought!

    yeah me in a latex predator suit dogging a fat bird in a northern car park. it would be a site to behold. if you get dnadult.com to sponsor me, i'll do it. say £300? The fat bird will get a cut. Probably off a millwall fan as chesterfield beat them 5-1 on sat. Sorry Lee! It hurts me too as their my second team (& have millwall shares) why did i admit that!:mrgreen:
