Marvellous sunshine (or Not !)

Posted by Barry Proctor on Wednesday, September 28, 2011,
As I am writing this blog, Richard and Michael are doing another marathon stint in the Aviary trying to prepare the show birds for the Club Show. This heat wave we are now experiencing is playing havoc with their plans and just adds weight to their preference for having the show put back to November when their birds will have gone through the moult naturally and be in peak condition. Trying to keep an even temperature (around 15C ) is difficult when the ambient temp outside is touching 30C.

Conflict of interest

It has been a frustrating week, which I'm sure a lot of fanciers can relate to at this time of year.

The Beginning


Barry Proctor I'm the hidden face lurking behind R & M Miller's Budgerigar world. I am attempting to set up this website to bring you inside that world. I intend to give you an inside view as to what goes on in the aviary, as much as possible from selecting breeding pairs, feeding regimes, medication and cleaning routines. I intend to do this with the full support of Michael and Richard Miller. It may take a while to get this up and running properly. Hopefully the full web site should be in place in time for the Budgerigar Society World Championship Show 2011.
