This was the second meeting organised by John Catchpole of the excellent Parrots magazine. It was very well attended by pet parrot owners - a different group than those who attend the Parrot Society meetings which include a lot more keen breeders than simply owners.
It was fascinating to see how many had brought their pets for a day out! One lady had two African gtreys, one on each shoulder. One had an amazon in a backpack with windows, others had macaws or amazons on their shoulders.
There were talks in a separate auditorium and a flying/information display done by keepers from the wonderful Paradize Park at Hayle in Cornwall. they work very closely with the World Parrot Trust who also had a stand at the meeting.
