Every year we help hundreds of stray animals find their way home but last month one feathered stray decided he wanted to take a holiday before being reunited with his owners.

Last month the GSPCA had a call from the harbour about a stray parakeet that had been found on the Crystal Symphony Cruise Ship that had flown on board while they were anchored at Guernsey.
