Watch the birdie!

While I was in Chichester this morning I took a short stroll through Priory Park, something I haven??t done for many years. I spent many a happy hour here as a child, especially with my friend Cathy who lived just around the corner. One of the things I particularly remember are the visits I made with my Mum to see the birds in the aviary. I had assumed the aviary would have long since disappeared but to my surprise it was still there and home to some very talkative and inquisitive budgerigars (admittedly not the same ones I saw as a child!). I only had my compact camera with me but I managed to get the right combination of large aperture and close proximity to the aviary to make the wire mesh disappear and captured a few shots as the birds flew between their perches. This colourful chap was a very good model and was quite willing to pose for a few snaps!

He certainly is a wonderful colour. When I was a child we had a yellow one called Bobby, who we assumed was a boy. One night my dad put a chicken's egg in the cage and we were amazed when we came down and found it!! Funnily enough it didn't hatch and we never questioned what a big egg it was for such a small bird!
