Birdline UK Pop-Up event for rescue parrots welcomes visitors to find out more about these stunning and intelligent birds
Parrots invaded St John’s Hall next to Tesco in Barnstaple today (Saturday) as a pop up parrot show came to town.
The event hosted by Birdline UK was an opportunity for anyone who wants to re-home a parrot or find out more about the fascinating birds to meet a few face-to-beak.
Barnstaple mayor Julie Hunt and husband David dropped in to see the show and have a chat with Birdline charity volunteers – and meet a few parrots too.
There were around 20 birds at the event, from a variety of different species but all rescued.
