    1. My mum always told me that local birds would kill it, if I ever let it fly free. Not sure about that, but food might have been an issue, in Central London. He lived for another three years, before we found him dead at the bottom of his cage one morning.
      Best wishes, Pete.


  2. We took our three children to Paris once, that’s another story, but they were totally amazed by some of the shops and street sellers. In a pet shop we saw a creepy sight, an open tray full of budgies. They didn’t fly away because they all had their wings clipped. The memory still makes me shudder.

  3. You’ve reminded me of our budgies. We had several budgies when I was younger. The only pets my father was ever keen on. And he’d let them free around the house. Thanks, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Olga. Those tiny shops that sell caged birds along La Rambla used to break my heart. Standing outside at night, I could hear them tweeting inside the locked shutters.
      Best wishes, Pete.
