Tried to put a few quick anagram clues together plus a couple of cryptic clues for you to answer. Only rule is that you can't (or rather shouldn't) use an anagram solver of any sort to help LOL
The words in italics are the letters to be reshuffled to name a bird which can be from anywhere around the world !
1) Would be such a laugh to see this bird perched on our oak bark (10)
2) Cat filched prey ? (4, 10)
3) Bollyood script: Cue drunkard in Inn (6, 6, 4)
4) Nice to see this cold place west (10, 3)
5) teenager welding goes quackers (5, 6, 4)
6) These canine parts make up a sea-bird 7, 4)
7) Americans call it an Apple hoarder (3, 9)
8) Dear Sweetheart …..(6, 8)
and the non-anagrams but purely cryptic clues .................
9) Pretty certain ? that someone is playing a prank (5, 4)
10) Type of bread from Manila ? (10, 5)

Have copied this to chew on without seeing anyone else's answers. Not holding out much hope though.!!

It's clue 2 TJ & I reckon it's 4,10
We've got No7 now. Good fun this
Oh I love a qui but am too tired now, going to have a cuppa and bed, but will look at this tomorrow.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Got all the anagrams and possibly number 10. Pondering number 9 now

Ooops ! so sorry Tony, blame it on me being tired after a busy day of garden and housework; corrected now (just wanted to make it more difficult LOL )
Well done folks, sounds as if you have most of them - will give others chance to have a go before one of you wants to list the answers !
Hazel, Mr GB reports that he has them all!
In reply to Bobs_Still_Retired:
Probably not a great clue for number 9. Instead of the word prank, think more horseplay, fooling or joking around - if that's any help !
