Wow I have no ideas other than check with UK customs about the regulations for bringing birds in from another country... Check if they have to be banded or micro chipped and if any species are banned ... Check about quarantine and if they have to have health guarantees from a vet in your country.... Good luck!

They will probably have to spend time in quarentine. Which is anything from 6 wks to 6 months. But mostly this is for mammals due to us supposedly being rabid free.
I live in Sussex which is next to Kent.
You're gonna miss the sunshine.
There's no ban on your birds.
When is this all gonna happen?

Be prepared for foul weather! I don't think we're too strict on rules so long as they have had all blood work and disease testing done and the vet has given them the OK I think they do need 6 weeks quarantine though. Are you moving with your whole family or is it just yourself?

Oh you will need to invest in winter boots, warm coats, jumpers, hats, scarfs.
What brings you all this way? If that's not too nosey!
I hope Solo and Marley. Don't find the temp change too much of a shock.
Our wildlife isn't as interesting as yours but you might find out why we're obsessed with our mad weather!

You will need vet certificates before they travel to say they are in good health and clean of diseases, they need to be checked by a vet once they reach us and may be placed in quarantine. Believe they have to be quarantined before they travel as well but this can be depending on country.

The best thing to do is ask Customs for UK and your country, ask CITIES in case they need any special permits and ask our UK DEFRA as they may be able to help as well.

Also ask your vet as they may know.
