Dear Readers, for some reason (probably author incompetence 🙁 ) the acknowledgement of everyone’s brilliance last week wasn’t published, so here it is now, and congratulations to all of you! And apologies!
Dear Readers, what a splendid selection of answers! Claire got a very creditable 8/10 (just a teeny tiny mix-up on the small raptors), and Mike from Alittlebitoutoffocus, Rosalind and Mark and Fran and Bobby Freelove all got a perfect 10 out of 10. Well done to all of you, and thanks to everyone for playing. I feel something weather-related coming on for Sunday 🙂 seeings as the wind from Storm Eunice which is racketing around outside as I write this is enough to blow anyone’s tiara off 🙂

Sorry we haven’t replied, it was my chemotherapy day yesterday and things go out of your head. Anyway we’d like to thank you for taking the time to do these quizzes, they’re very enjoyable and we look forward to them, so as long as you don’t mind doing them we’ll keep participating 😁
I love doing them too, Fran and Bobby, so they’ll be happening for the foreseeable future! And I hope you soon feel better after the chemotherapy, I know how it absolutely knocks you for six xxxxxx
I hear that your common or garden sparrow is on the decline, and believe it as most birds unfortunately seem to be.
That said, the bushes and trees around Portchester and Portsmouth seem to be loud with sparrows. So maybe, just maybe, here’s hoping, they’re doing ok in this part of Hants?
And finally, we went out today and didn’t get blown away. It was so nice! Think we’ll be checking the battening against the next Named Storm. We’ve already put more draught excluder around the door to the loft space.
BTW – thanks for doing all these quizzes.
