The Grebe says.. September 08 2014

...Down with brown goo!!!  I've just spent the last several hours washing it out of my feathers following an unfortunate altercation with a G-Plan "Astro" coffee table.  Now sitting pretty in the Whittaker & Gray New In collection, this poor beauty arrived covered in the nastiest gunk it's been my misfortune to encounter in many years, and it did not want to come off!  We set upon it vigorously with much gusto and enough wire wool to make a lifetime's worth of nests for me and all of my relatives, and eventually uncovered the gem we all knew must be in there somewhere.  However, by the end of the process the entire Whittaker & Gray team looked like they'd been caught in a North Sea oil spill (that's probably in poor taste, but I'm a Grebe so it's OK) but of course only yours truly had a thousand feathers to clean up!  The good news is it was definitely worth it - check out the snap below or view the finished piece here and see what you think...
