DeeBee Dear, here is a pic for you!

Oops... sorry... wrong link! Scroll up a bit. Image

Thanks JenBird ... so helpful Image I have made notes. Image

Basically look for a feathered friend that looks like a Concorde with orange legs. Oh, and the fact that half the twitching world will be looking at it too will help.

Tomorrow I will be visiting the spa Image A girl has to look good on such occasions (who knows who will be there!) Image
