on camera - the escaped parrot causing a flap in Burnham!
vividly coloured parrot has been causing a flap in Burnham-On-Sea
by baffling residents with its appearances across the town.
Graham Witts from St Andrew's Church took this photo of the bird
after seeing it twice in 24 hours.
parrot has been spotted several times in recent weeks but until
now has not been photographed.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "On Thursday morning the service
at St Andrew's was accompanied by what sounded like a car alarm.
Upon investigation, I found a green and yellow parrot sitting
in the trees behind the church! After staying a while, the bird
flew off and did not return to the area."
then on Friday I was enjoying some time gardening at the vicarage
in Rectory Road when I was surprised to spot the parrot again,
this time sat in a pear tree in my garden for 20 minutes."
Graham added: "Is this a sign of global warming or of a very
clever escape by the bird?"
