A cockatiel who went missing from his home in Bispham has been found.
Three-year-old pet Billy, said to be so tame he will land on people's shoulders, arms, or head, flew off after getting spooked in his back garden in Whiteholme Road yesterday afternoon.
Vicky Louise, 20, the daughter of Billy's owner Michelle, said: "We've searched high and low and can't find him anywhere.
"We put the cage outside so he could chill in the sun and listen to other birds tweeting, but as we took him outside the lid fell off, he got scared, and flew away."
Billy loves the Adamms Family theme tune, cuddles,and fluffy materials, Vicky added. He is grey, with a yellow and white head and orange cheeks.
After an appeal went out on The Gazette's social media channels and website this morning, Vicky said: "Billy is home!"
