I called the police who called the RSPCA, who couldnt get close enough to net the escapee.
Every time the parrot flew up out of the canopy it was instantly mobbed by corvids, when it dived back into the woods the ground feeders did a fast plough.
Looks like it might be there for a while. It was feeding well on buds and seemed to be enjoying its freedom.
As trackers we are always using bird language and dynamics to get us closer to the action. I have used it all over the world with pin-point accuracy. Using it in the UK is difficult, because , sometimes the horizons are quite small.
Using it in the woods takes a lot of practice, but it pays off.
As dark set in I left the parrot, and will return to see how it is doing.
When I was a teenager I had a Whalbergs eagle, that did the same thing, just decided to be awkward and didnt want to come down and for several days flew to the same trees within a half mile.
Finger crossed the macau will be retur
