In Episode 1 of Series 3, Host Gyton Grantley meets ‘Joe’ the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo and his owner who rescued him, Kim Sowcroft.  After losing his previous ‘mum’ and living with her son, Joe went into a state of despair and needed to be re-homed due to his outbursts and inability to settle into his new life. A passionate bird owner and foster carer, Kim was the only person that Joe seemed to warm to, and as they say, the rest is history.   Kim has some really useful advice for anyone considering getting a pet bird, particularly a cockatoo and other bird species that can live up to 80 years of age.
