    Tony gets to the line first with all 10 correct; 

    I think Gardenbirder's OH may have got there first but it's not really a competition.

  • TJ,  Mr GB suggests you visit the Hawk Conservancy Trust where you can see an example of number 4--called Galaxy! 

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

  • TJ,  Mr GB will try to remember to take a photo of Galaxy when he is there on Wednesday.

    Kind regards, 

    Ann

  • 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
