Macaw spotted at Cobtree Golf Course

A Macaw which was on the loose in Maidstone is now safely in the care of the RSPCA.

The long-tailed parrot was spotted at Cobtree Golf Course, near Sandling, on Sunday.

The sighting was subsequently reported on an online lost bird page, alongside a photo of the colourful bird, and a woman who had lost a similar animal got in touch with the course.
