The parrot rescued from a tree at Lancaster University.

The bird was brought down from a group of silver birch trees by James Cox from DR Tree Surgeons who was working nearby.

Earlier university staff had tried to coax it down with sunflower seeds.

The parrot had been in the tree for two days and was struggling to fly off. Its owner was unknown.
