If anyone is over this side and wants somewhere amusing to go there is a Parrot Sanctuary at Friskney, near Skegness. You first go in and you are greeted by a parrot saying "Hello." As you go around there are cages with parrots in and you get the impression that "Hello" is the only thing they can say, but they are all friendly. Then you get to a big cage which is full of African Greys. A lot of parrots were abandoned during the bird flu scare. Anyway, one parrot kicks of with a ring tone, then another with a different one, others answer the phone and then there's doing reversing horns and it turns into a mad house. There's posh parrots, yorkshire parrots, lincoln parrots and they're giving it rooty toot at once. I could hardly pull myself away from the cage, it was hilarious. There's a cage you can walk through and parakeets land on your head in large numbers. A thoroughly entertaining couple of hours.
