Budgie rescued from rough seas

CAPTAIN, the budgie who was rescued from the rough seas

Half a mile out to sea and in rough weather, it was the last thing the members of the diving club expected to see.
There, being thrown
about helplessly on the waves, was a little blue budgerigar. Bedraggled, half drowned and too tired to fly, it seemed it would not be long before he was heading to the great bird cage in the sky.
The divers turned their boat around and rescued the
budgie from the waves. The following day, the budgie nicknamed "Captain" by their rescuers, was looking full of bounce again. He was brought to an animal shelter where he recovered.

The RSPCA said it was unbelieveable that the tiny bird had been spott
ed and saved so far out to sea.
