Cockatiel appeal

An appeal has been launched to reunite a pet cockatiel, that was found in a South Normanton garden, with its owner.

Helen Walland spotted the cockatiel in her garden on Downing Street on Monday morning.

She climbed a ladder to the bough it was perched on and offered it seed before it eventually hopped on to her arm.

Helen said: “I don’t think he would have survived the night. He is someone’s pet and someone must be missing him dreadfully.”

The bird resembles a small parrot with a yellow coat and grey wings.
