Parrots visit Devizes Rotary!
Earlier this week we had some unusual visitors to the club when Sonia & Stacy brought along some of the parrots that have been re-housed with the help of Birdline Parrot Rescue.
The charity was founded in 1992, initially to rescue and care for birds in the Warwickshire area. However people specialising in various species of birds from Finches to Macaws were gradually recruited to cover various parts of the country, including Wiltshire.
The resulting nationwide network of voluntary helpers and area co-ordinators collect birds and keep them until a suitable home can be found for them. In this way Birdline has helped over 1,500 birds to find new homes, liaising with organisations such as police forces, zoos and other rescue organisations in the UK and abroad.
