Home | Rail | James, the Covanburn Budgie

The Covanburn team had a unusual site visitor during our work at a level crossing at Murie, when a yellow budgie decided to adopt them.

The budgie arrived on-site early and spent the entire morning watching the team at work and following them around the site. James, a member of our construction team, managed to rescue him and made some local enquiries to see if he’d been lost – eventually, the local pub offered to take him in until his owner could be found.

Since then, we’ve learned that the pub has adopted him and he’s been named James after his rescuer.

At least we can be thankful that James the Budgie was in high-vis – health and safety is important at Covanburn!
