hmm, I'm rubbish at making out these animals as Rosie will know, but that looks like a seagull to me, not a pigeon... that beak is definitely gull material (Christine's I mean) - gorgeous glass though.

 ;D  -well all I can say is the ones that live near me  ::) have a more shall we say ....'refined' beak  ;D   But I do like him - honestly - he's a gorgeous colour.
and I have no idea what else you'd buy in Venice cos I was there a few months ago and couldn't afford a thing  :cry: :cry:  I had to be content with drooling in the shops whilst hubby and two young sons stood outside in 90degrees moaning (they had no idea then that 90degrees was nothing compared to the 5hour horrific cat ride they were about to endure all because I had insisted on a quick trip to Venice :ooh:

I'm glad you like him. He makes me smile each time I walk past him as he looks so crestfallen! :thup:
