'Probably the most unusual bird - an albino oystercatcher with a twisted bill - now resides, stuffed, in an Edinburgh museum having died on Handa in 1967'
an albino oystercatcher may be a good bird to make next! i have been thinking i may use some of the wool spun from cheviot sheep for this . a twisted red bill and pink legs from twine and fishing line would be a good contrast.. it will also be a good odd bird to put in amongst the others.. perhaps to represent the queen of Handa.
