The The National Exhibition Show 2018 held Sunday October 7th at the usual venue of Stafford County Show Ground was judged to be a great success by all involved.  In spite of the cold, many PSUK members took advantage of their early entry facility, while more visitors arrived later in the morning. The Exhibition of Cage and Aviary Birds included an extensive range of show birds, and was well received and organised. Our thanks are due, as always, to the number of volunteer Trustees and helpers, as well as the paid security staff and other officials that keep the event moving so well. The extra precautions put in place for the potential arrival of Newcastle Disease from Belgium did not greatly hinder things, and fortunately that threat in any case did not materialise.

*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
