Hi Richard, I am member of a parrot santuary in friskney lincolnshire. Good luck with the application, I like you could have bought a hand read baby but wanted to give a well deserved home to one that was "homeless" as such. Fostering parrots is by no means an easy option, I have had a few myself but i have found it most rewarding compared to ones that have been bought from breeders. Although I am new to birdline and havent fostered a BL bird yet i know how difficult it can be.
Good luck with your application, I know you will find it rewarding
