THE TALE OF the rogue parrot discovered on Dublin Airport’s runway may have seen solved by an eagle-eyed social media worker at Lidl.

Earlier this week, a grey parrot was discovered after a routine runway inspection at Dublin Airport. 

A picture of the parrot was posted on Twitter by Dublin Airport this evening. But shortly afterwards, Lidl’s official account replied saying that one of its stores has a missing parrot poster up on its noticeboard. A man has come forward and claimed ownership of the wantaway bird. 

Dublin Airport initially tweeted: “Our firefighter Craig Wade found this African grey parrot during a routine runway inspection earlier this week. She’s being given specialist care & is calm & doing well. We’d like to reunite her with her owner. Please RT to help us find them & DM us if she is yours.”

Lidl replied: “Guys this is going to sound unbelievable but there’s a “Missing Parrot” poster in one of our stores, so we called the number to check and it’s his parrot! We’ll drop you a DM now.”

We’ll keep you abreast of the situation if more information comes forward.
