A FLYAWAY cockatiel has been found and now a Suffolk vets' practice is trying to reunite him with his owners.

A FLYAWAY cockatiel has been found and now a Suffolk vets' practice is trying to reunite him with his owners.

The grey bird, with the distinctive yellow head and bright orange cheeks, was found by a couple after they heard him chirping on their windowsill in Sparrows Croft Road, Rendlesham, on Sunday.

They dropped him off at the nearby Smith Ryder-Davis vets practice and now the bird has been safely transferred to the Woodbridge practice where staff are caring for him.

Nurse Michelle Read said he had been trying to talk but no-one can decipher what he is saying.

“It is obvious he keeps trying to talk,” she said. “But no-one can tell what it is he is trying to say, maybe he is trying to give us his address.

“We are trying to reunite him with his owners; he is eating and is very chirpy we just hope his owners will come forward.”

Mary Anderson, a receptionist at the Rendlesham practice, added: “He is a feisty little thing, quite friendly. I hope he gets found soon, he is a lovely little thing, he has a real bit of character.”
