A BRIXINGTON parrot owner is desperate to be reunited with his friendly African grey talking parrot Digger who flew the nest on June 22.Darren Rose, 39, and wife Saria, 37, of Langstone Drive, are offering a reward for the safe return of two-and-a-half-year-old Digger who escaped from the couple's home after flying out through an open door.Darren said the bird had been spotted in the Brixington area since its escape and asked locals to keep an eye out for the pet.The bird is tame and talks a lot - usually starting a conversation with 'hello, alright then?'."It was one of those 30 second things when the backdoor was open. She went through three rooms and out the back door," said Darren. "She's my wife's baby and very devoted. I think she was looking for my wife, who was upstairs."We saw her on Monday night in Brixington park but she was right at the top of a fir tree, then a seagull spooked her and she flew off over the Pound Lane allotments."At least we know she's okay and hasn't been carried off for miles on the wind."If you have seen, or captured, the missing parrot, contact Mr and Mrs Rose on (01395) 272989 or 07775611004.
