We woke up on Sunday morning, after a rather painless flight from Johannesburg to Khartoum. With African air travel, this is the exception rather than the norm. The first thing Grant did was to go downstairs to Issam flat. He had been taking care of Rambo and Sweet Pea in our absence. They were in fine fettle although they were a little skittish when Grant placed their new toys and treats in the cage. We'd brought a bath with a mirror, new grit paper cage liners and a large seed bell. I placed some lettuce leaves, which they love, in the cage and kept my hand in their for a while to get them re-accustomed to me. I then took a few photos in which Rambo appears; Sweet Pea had fled to the nest box all the while I had the camera inside.
At the moment they are on the balcony singing and chirping away at the wild birds who come for the extra seed I put out for them. So all's well in Khartoum in general and in Budgie-World in particular!
