Have your say

A tame jackdaw with a penchant for stealing, hanging around burger vans and befriending children gave his owners a fright when he disappeared last month.

The mischievous bird has been living with his family in Abbey Road, Swineshead, for seven years – coming and going as he pleases but returning at night to enjoy the home comforts.

The Free Press pubklished the family’s appeal on our Facebook page and they offered a £50 reward.

Fortunately, on Monday night the bird nonchalantly showed up after his four-week long adventure.

“Izzy has been with us for seven years now. He is naughty and demanding but is very much a part of our family,” said owner Monica Lawrence, who has rescued injured crows and other birds of the corvid family.

The bird first made headlines back in November 2011, when he went missing for 17 days

On that occasion hew was tracked down to a burger van in Spalding and back home in time for Christmas.

Along with burgers, Izzy is said to have an affinity with children and elderly ladies.
