The tide is high but I'm holding on
Given the number of years it has been knocking around, and as it's the closest thing we have to local avian celebrity (especially now the Ring-necked Duck appears to have shuffled off this mortal coil and joined the anatidaen choir invisible) I for one (or two, depending on how the pills are working) think this bird should be invested with a moniker. If our little leucistic friend had been male I'd have suggested 'The Lapwing with no name' or 'Blondie' but, as she is of the feminine persuasion, I'm thinking Deborah (Debbie to her friends). All those in favour say "Aye".
