Gosh, I thought it was only me that got up that early! Thanks for your reply.......so, do you think this is Chinese, or have you an idea that it might be from another maker/country?
Any further thoughts on these little birds would be gratefully received. There are 3 others on eBay at the moment, one is a yellow one and the other two are similar to the one shown, with the third being more colourful.
I will be doing a lot of photography soon, as a way of cataloguing my collection. I will be very happy to share these images with you all at the 'Glass Zoo' when I have got round to it.
