A PARROT owner is appealing for help from the public to find a bird which has just escaped from his home.

John Reade, of Taunton Road, was horrified when his green and yellow Senegal Parrot darted out the front door.

The parrot, who John is fostering for Bird-Line, was heading in the Somerset Bridge direction.

If anyone spots it, call John on 01278-422334 or email jcreade@hotmail.co.uk.
