Moustache parakeets arrive at the zoo

By Julia Noller

My mum and dad had a breeding pair of moustache parakeets among other parrots and birds and when my mum was expecting my sister she decided to find them new homes. As they were a breeding pair George Mottershead was interested and my dad gave them to him as a donation as they had known each other many years from my dad living next door to the zoo. This letter was a Thankyou letter from George to my dad.
