    I wish i could help, but i'm in the USA & my signature would not count. :(
    Microchips are a wonderful tool & IME are overlooked by many pet-owners - even a small pet can be chipped, & if they are lost, it helps to get them back to U.

    Years ago, while sharing my older sister's house & making $$ for college, a cockatiel arrived in their yard, whistling. He was terrified of the larger birds, a blue jay flying overhead sent him shrieking up into the tree-tops as if the jay was a bird-hunting accipter, & spent more time flaring off the food than he spent eating.
    It took me 3 days to catch him, & while very thin, he wasn't in horrible condition - just very hungry, & in need of a safe place to restore his muscle. // A week later, he was in decent shape, & i put an ad in the paper looking for his owner - he had a tune he'd whistle & danced the sailor's hornpipe, a very friendly bird.
    WHILE I WAS AT WORK, & without asking me, my eejit elder-sis gave the bird to someone who claimed he was hers... she'd already bought another bird "to replace him", but said she was thrilled to get him back. :rolleyes: 4 days later, she was phoning to say he wasn't hers, after all, & that he "wasn't getting along" with the new cockbird. :confused:
    I told Peggy it was her mess, & she'd have to get herself out of it - i wasn't getting involved.

    A microchip would've made all the difference, allowing me to get him home again, & his owner to reunite with an obviously-adored pet. :(
