Dear Readers, excellent performances all round this week! We had Mike with 16 out of 20, Andrea with 18 out of 20 and at the top were Fran and Bobby Freelove with 20 out of 20. Thank you all for taking part, and let’s see what I can come up with for tomorrow…

    Congrats to Fran and Bobby and Andrea. I was torn between 5 and 7, but thought the ones in 7 looked more pointed. (But then I did wonder why the Guillemot’s were in a grassy nest). Hopefully I’ll do better next week!
