    Thanks all for taking part in this quiz, you've all made good progress and current leader is Tony with 18/22 and Hazel just behind on 17.

    I will now add the number of letters in each clue so head back to first page clues   lol

    and to think No: 22 is my favourite clue/answer  lol

    Its an excellent clue H, but maybe  a term southerners don't use much :)

    I'm a southerner & use it all the time, but rarely see the answer!

    P.S. Thanks for the clues H, may help with some of them but can't get the anagram!

    Best wishes

    Thanks for the clues, Hazel. I've got two more but two still to go. Not sure I would have got 22 (assuming it's right) without knowing the number of letters/words. Can't think why I took so long to get 21. LOL

    Thanks for the word sizes - that is helping (that and realising that the clues might be for the Latin rather than English name!)   though I've still got a long way to go

    You only need two more Tony and absolutely spot on for  22  !  

      lol @ 21   it was a bit of a quirky one but I threw it in for a laugh  !  

     Clue 19:   The expansive area of grassland could be moorland.   

    @ Maggy;   think there is only one Latin answer which is No.6    but the English version ( ..... of this bird)    (6 letters) would be equally acceptable !

    I've just realised I might be looking for a butterfly. I've entered one - am I right?

    Thanks Hazel - no. 6 was the one I got the Latin for - was one of the first I got so of course started to think that others might be in Latin too!  Not very good at this - got 13 so far (I think) - 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 11, 12, 14, 18, 19,  20, 21 and 22.   Your  clues were useful, thanks.    Also got possibles for 5 and 7.
