BONDI VET

HEART­THROB IN CHILDERS

Isis Town and Country - - FRONT PAGE -

IT’S just as well Chris Brown is a vet and not a GP – other­wise he may have been tend­ing to hearts that went aflut­ter when he dropped into the Fly­ing High Bird Sanc­tu­ary this week.

Bird sanc­tu­ary owner Anne Tock­nell said Dr Chris, from Chan­nel Ten’s pro­gram, Bondi Vet, popped in on his way to film a bird re­lease in 1770 with wildlife res­cuer “Twin­nies”, Brigette and Paula Pow­ers.

“I’ve known the Twin­nies and their mother He­len for a long time,” Mrs Tock­nell said.

She said Dr Chris’s visit came just in time for a blue quaker bird that had be­come ill af­ter fall­ing into wa­ter con­tain­ing bleach.

“He checked the bird and it’ll be all right. He’s had lots of baths,” Mrs Tock­nell said.

“He also looked over some of the oth­ers and gave us a few ideas about things we could do, which we’ve taken on board.

“He is re­ally very taken with an­i­mals and he’s just won­der­ful with them.”
