I have answers to all but not 100 % convinced about 9 and 10. I have messaged them to H, though not sure if they will get there?

Phew, some of those were hard especially 4 and 10 cos they were birds I'd never heard of. My results are HERE
Thanks for challenging us, Hazel. Gets the brain working during the dark days of winter

Well done folks, Tony gets to the line first with all 10 correct; Bob is almost there except for No.9
Thanks for participating; will give it till end of day and then put answers up for those still struggling with some.

I think Gardenbirder's OH may have got there first but it's not really a competition.
In reply to TeeJay:
joint winners - well done Mr GB and Tony
TJ, Mr GB suggests you visit the Hawk Conservancy Trust where you can see an example of number 4--called Galaxy!
TJ, Mr GB will try to remember to take a photo of Galaxy when he is there on Wednesday.
Ok, has everyone had enough time to work out the answers ? I will post up answers (which some of you have already worked out) later this evening.
In reply to Gardenbirder:
Thanks Ann, it's somewhere I've wanted to visit. Perhaps in the summer when I visit my cousin on the otherside of the Severn.
EDIT I've just realised you were talking about the Hawk Conservatory Trust near Andover. I was thinking of the International Centre for Birds of Prey at Newent in Glos. Doh
OK here we go with the answers; thanks to all who participated and well done to those who managed to complete the quiz correctly, methinks I'll have to be more cryptic for the next one !
