The heartbroken owner of a pet parrot which has flown off from its home in Bishop's Stortford has pleaded for the public's help to find her.

Milly Manson, who lives on the Havers estate, posted an appeal on Facebook page Stortford Nature after Apple, a pineapple conure aged about nine months, flew out at about 1pm on Monday (January 3).

Milly said: "We are heartbroken. I'm devastated. I've been standing in my kitchen staring at the sky just sobbing.

"She's super-friendly and loves fruit, particularly apple and grapes. I've been walking the streets for two hours – and nothing."

Apple is one of her owner's three pet parrots. "They're my complete world [and are] spoilt rotten, They have their own room / playground here. My flock miss her terribly.

"She loves a bath in the sink, eats anything and everything. She can meow like a cat, and say 'Shut up'. Loves people!"

Milly added: "I've heard escapees don't go too far, but I know she is resilient so could venture. My flock are shouting for her so I'm hoping she'll hear them.

"I also would imagine she's loving life out there – free flight. But she's always with us wherever we go, shoulder riding. So I guess she's missing us too."
