Notts parrot brought back from the brink of death by woolly jumpers
IT may be the time of year when people dream of putting away their woolly jumpers for summer, but one parrot in Eastwood will be keeping his on all year round.
Charlie, a green Eclectus parrot, was starved and began eating his own feathers.
And now, in order to stay warm, his new owner Rebecca Blagg has knitted him a series of jumpers.
Mrs Blagg, who is an area co-ordinator for the Safe Haven parrot rescue centre said his favourite cardigan is the yellow one.

She added: "I am quite tough but when I saw him I burst into tears. It was so sad. The worse abuse case I’ve seen.
"He had plucked himself. He had been eating his feathers to survive. He was at death’s door. I just wanted to give him a chance.
"He was extremely shut down. He was very depressed. He wouldn’t move or do anything, he just sat there.
"We had to feed him with a spoon because he couldn’t eat on his own and he couldn’t even perch because he was too weak. He just fell off. He was black and blue from falling off with his previous owner."
