*STOP PRESS* Our sincere congratulations to Rosemary Low for her well-deserved receipt of the prestigious Gorilla Award at the recent IXth International Parrot Congress held at Loro Parque, Tenerife. This award is presented in recognition of her lifelong dedication to parrots and their breeding and conservation. For further details see Gorilla Prize Loro Parque.
> Sadly we have to report the passing of John Hayward, a long-term member and past trustee of the PSUK. John, together with his wife Anita, who also passed earlier this year, managed The National Theft Register, and together re-united many lost parrots with their owners, as well as aiding successful prosecutions against a number of criminals involved in bird theft. For the moment, any enquiries regarding lost, found or stolen birds should still be directed to the published telephone number or email Lost & Found Parrots, and members of John's family will answer or re-direct your queries. In the longer term, the PSUK will be setting up its own management of lost and found birds. Our deepest sympathies and condolences go to the family and close friends of John & Anita Hayward.
> We may have been promised an Indian Summer through September and October, but October and November are also the months when we expect gale-force winds. A timely reminder to prepare for winter is provided by Rosemary Low's article under Parrot Husbandry - Winter: Preventing Losses
