Pedro the parrot is reunited with pals

By Claire Williamson

Pedro the parrot has been reunited with his two parrot pals after the rare birds were stolen from their home at a Co Down visitor attraction.

Harry, Jack and now Pedro are all back in their heated environment in Seaforde Gardens and Tropical Butterfly House near Newcastle.

The three rare and expensive birds were stolen last Monday.

Harry and Jack were handed back after the owners got a call on Wednesday night that a third party would be returning the birds.

Pedro was recovered by police during a search of a property in the Burnreagh Drive area of Newtownards on May 14, where a number of other items believed to have been stolen during burglaries in the Down area in recent days were also recovered.

A 27-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of four counts of burglary, handling stolen goods and possession of class B and class C drugs. He has since been released on bail.

Owner Lady Anthea Forde said: "I can't believe my luck because I really thought they were all dead."
