I emailed a vet late last night as it happened midnight (UK time) and basically he said the bleeding will stop in 5-10mins. He said the parrot should be fine but the wound will be a bit sore for a week or so. I'll take him to the vets regardless and get him checked out properly i think.

Bird bit tongue when crashing

Yikes! I don't know if he will be okay or not. You need to Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to make sure it doesn't have any broken bones and to trim it's wings so it doesn't have any more accidents.

As far as the bleeding goes, I suspect the bleeding has stopped by now, or you took the bird to an avian vet before it bled to death. I hope everything turned out alright.
