The Salcombe Waterbug
Cockatoo was owned for at least 22 years by Dr ED Morgan who kept her at Salcombe, in Devon. Other than that very little is known about her. She's one of the sixteen Upham's Waterbugs that we know existed, but have scant information on. If you can help fill in her story, please get in touch.
