Charlie’s treats!

Blue and gold macaw, Charlie, is getting stuck into new toys and treats following a festive donation from her adopter.

Christine Clive, a long-term supporter of the 27-year-old Discovery Centre parrot sent in a stocking full of nutty treats plus the monetary gift which DZG Presenter Heather John spent on a number of goodies from our Amazon wishlist.

Heather said: “I purchased a variety of parrot challenge toys for Charlie and we’ve had one delivery, which she soon got stuck into playing with and we’re still waiting on more, so she’ll have a second round of presents to enjoy when they arrive.

“Anything that’s noisy and jingles and she can pull apart, she absolutely adores, so we’re very grateful for Christine’s generous donation, which has allowed us to purchase them for her. Charlie’s very appreciative!”
