The Parrot Society UK presents an award for the first UK breeding of parrot species or sub-species. Very few have been reported in recent years, so it was a pleasure to be able to resurrect the honour at our Council meeting of 4th July 2021. Trustee Mike Roxx has quite a collection of Brotogeris parakeets, and is founder and manager of the Brotogeris Special Interest Group of The Parrot Society UK.
In 2020, he successfully breed a clutch of the cobalt-winged parakeet sub-species - Brotogeris cyanoptera gustavi.
