Usually house-bound parrot escaped into the open air from Walwers Lane. If seen, try to wrap in a towel to calm her with strangers. Even if not caught, please phone owner on 07591 271 660 to say where seen.

There's a colony in Newhaven, I'm told. At night they search the county for their kind, calling them to break free from their bondage. The Parrots Liberation Front are recognisable by their signature black berets and the Rights of Parrots pamphlets they carry beneath their wings. Interestingly enough their founder Tom Parrot used to live in Lewes until he escaped from his cage and flew to Denton Island, then a nest of blood thirsty pirates and parrots crying "pieces of eight, whose a naughty boy" and other scurrilous things I would blush to repeat. Members of the public are advised to be cautious, unlike blackbirds they don't stop at pecking off noses but will attack any projecting parts of the human anatomy. They take a dim view of informers and it is rumoured that they have spies amongst the native species hiding in every tree and hedgerow. You have been warned.
