Every summer museums get an influx of objects discovered on beaches by holidaymakers. This week’s mystery object is from a beach in Kerry, Ireland, found by Emer, Ronan, Rory and Paddy:
Any idea what this is and what it comes from?

Very long, very thin. Could it be from a diachrome animal that confusingly doesn’t eat algae?
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.
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.
Some great cryptic comments guys!
Didn’t ‘Ol Blue Eyes sing specifically about this week’s puzzle?
“Come Fly with Me, Let’s Fly, Let’s Fly Away….”
i forgot to mention… i’d guess it was rather large and doltish… a real goon.
if it were from my side of the pond – I’d be looking at Uria chest
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…
Whatever creature it came from keeled over and died a while ago 😦
This maybe an ‘awk-ward’ response, but I bet this one has some really sizable ‘tenders’ (pectoralis minor).
