Fowl or Fake: it's the Lesser-Spotted Seedeating solution!

Did you have a go at the silly bird names quiz yesterday?

Well, here are the answers. The five FAKE birds were:
  • Hasselbach's Boubou
  • Red-Shafted Punchpecker
  • Yawning Sandgrouse
  • Buffy-Cheeked Ventax
  • White-Throated Tiqibux (how did so many of you resist ticking the Tiqibux, eh?)

This means that the following charmingly-monikered species are REAL:

In other news, you may have heard that there's Torchwood on the radio for the next three days, and then there's Torchwood on the telly all next week. Since the BBC have made the effort to bludgeon the nation's consciousness in this way, I think it's fairly likely that I will be moved to do some posting about it. Therefore, if Torchwood doesn't float your boat (or indeed open your Rift or recharge your Compact Laser Deluxe), I can only apologize in advance for the inconvenience of having to scroll past my spoiler cuts.

Rest assured that I'll try to stick in a few bits of general-interest trivia above the cuts, to smooth the way and save you all from the sort of dazed brain-death that surely awaits me after a week of such media madness...
