Budgie thieves leave George’s aviary empty
Wednesday 7th November 2012, 5:00PM GMT.
THIEVES have stolen 69-year-old George Bullock’s beloved budgies.
The 32 birds, worth about £600 in total, were taken from one of two aviaries at the back of his home at Bailiff’s Cross Road, St Andrew’s.
But conures [small parrots] in an adjoining aviary, which are worth a lot more, were not taken.
Mr Bullock was not optimistic the birds would be found.
He said he missed in particular a pure white bird, which he had bred, because of its unique colour.
Mr Bullock has kept budgies for five years. He realised his birds were missing at the start of this week.
