Poll The Parrot

  • Poll - Eliza Bunts Parrot

    HMS Trincomalee is the oldest warship afloat anywhere in Europe...one of the most advanced fighting machines of her age.

    Eliza Bunt was a passenger with 2 children during the maiden voyage of HMS Trincomalee 1818-19.

    During the voyage she kept a detailed diary of her journey and mentions her parrot Poll, which was most probably a species native to Sri Lanka.

    Sadly Poll was killed by a neighbours cat on her return to Britain.

    An old reminder that cats and birds dont play well together.
