chatting-by-aviary-710pxIn the 1930s a gift of Australian birds was made, via the Honorary Curator of the aviary, Captain John Fletcher MC, by Mr Bert Barnett.  Out of 126 birds offered, 40 rare specimens of parrot arrived safely.  Does anyone know what happened to the birds and how they were received by Nottingham folk?  An illustrated catalogue was prepared.  Has anyone seen this? If you have, please contact either:
