Hi All,

Just back from Newhaven and our wonderful Princess Parrot experience!  One of 
my all time birding highlights.  Being in dune country just on dawn with these 
wonderful birds flying around - magic!!

Thanks so much to Joe and Danae for being so welcoming, and to Peter and Toni 
who are doing a fantastic job of making sure all visitors see the parrots.  
They have been up before dawn just about everyday since the parrots turned up - 
a huge undertaking from them and much appreciated.  

Flying out of Alice yesterday I had a wonderful experience with budgies. As the 
plane was taxiing to the end of the runway, two budgies flew up on to the wing 
of the 737 and traveled for a couple of hundred meters before flying off.  Long 
enough for me to dig my mobile out and stuff up getting a photo or two (Arrgghh 
- it would have made a great photo!)   It made me think if anyone else has ever 
had a similar experience with birds hitching a ride in this fashion.

Kind regards
