  1. Kids bringing such rubbish into the museum? I’d’ be stern with ’em. Possibly a mis-spelling of my own surname would provide a generic identification? Or maybe it’s that chap that JKRowling writes about in her adult crime novels. He’ll need some tea as well.

  2. I don’t really keep abreast of seabird anatomy but with a little guile I hope I’ve found the right ‘mot’ for this bird.

  3. Didn’t ‘Ol Blue Eyes sing specifically about this week’s puzzle?

    “Come Fly with Me, Let’s Fly, Let’s Fly Away….”

  4. Right. I have finally made a little sense of the clues so far and am therefore tentatively been keel hauled.

    Now to find out about the rest…

  5. This maybe an ‘awk-ward’ response, but I bet this one has some really sizable ‘tenders’ (pectoralis minor).
