Ralph goes to the pub, watches football matches and says ‘alright butt?’ (a Welsh term of endearment) to passers-by.
According to Shaun Bundy (BR Hodgson Framing Ltd.’s Quantity Surveyor), Ralph also made history recently by being “one of the first” parrots to climb to the top of Pen-y-Fan.
“I take him everywhere with me – to the pub, to watch the football and just out and about in general,” Shaun told website Walesonline.
“He loves it and speaks to everyone. I’ve had him since he was hatched, so he’s been around people his whole life and he’s picked up a lot of words from us. He’s definitely got a valleys accent. He’s really Welsh, although he doesn’t swear – I don’t know how though.”
Shaun added “I had a look on Google to see whether a parrot had ever been up Pen-y-Fan before, and I couldn’t find anything. So, I think Ralph is probably the first parrot to ever climb to the top. Everyone loved it and loads of people stopped to take pictures with him and say hello…Next up is Kilimanjaro!”
