Tha Kakapo - Parrot of the Night

Many thanks to Stephen Fry on Twitter: this clip from BBC's 'Last Chance to See' is really funny. It may make you laugh out loud - you have been warned!!

The kakapo is the rarest parrot in the world. It’s flightless, it’s the world’s heaviest parrot, it's possibly the oldest living bird and it has a subsonic mating boom that can travel several kilometres. It is also on the brink of extinction with only 124 remaining worldwide.

You can find more information about Sirocco and the amazing work achieved by the 'Kakapo Recovery Programme' from their website:

Here's Sirocco from the above clip - he's beautiful!
