Julie and Darren of Dew Drop
Close, Heacham have raised their pet parrot,
Rizla, since a baby so he is very much part of
their family. HOL is sad to report that
Rizla is currently lost and hopes that someone
out there can help by reporting sightings.
He flew out of Julie and Darren's home on
Sunday, 2 July (around 1pm) towards New Row,
Heacham. Despite assistance from
neighbours all searches proved fruitless.
Rizla prefers the company of
males rather than females, is a constant talker
- he is forever repeating their children's names
- and he is unable to fly very high but can
climb. The RSPCA advise that he may be
near an area with children or aviary birds as
this is similar to his home environment.
Parrots have been known to return home in
similar circumstances after an absence as long
as 30 days. It has been 6 days since Rizla
disappeared so here's hoping.
It is possible that Rizla has been seen in
Snettisham but this report is unconfirmed.
Julie and Darren tell me that
there is a reward for his capture or return as
they would dearly love to see their "baby"
