For those of you who have been waiting patiently to find out if you correctly guessed the Big Curlew's name, the competition is finally closed and the winning entry has been drawn.
We had a lot of interesting and fun guesses. Several people thought it might be "Curly", a few went for "Jack" or "Bill" (my personal favourite was "Digby", although it didn't fit in with a single clue we gave out either in the posts or in person).
But a number of people did correctly guess the name our curlew was born with:
So, since we had more than one correct entry, we put those entries in a hat (well, a box) and made one of our newest librarians go fishing for pieces of paper (which was amusing to watch, since she's shorter than the person who was holding the box...)
And the winner is...
Congratulations, Sam, we'll be in touch to tell you when to pick up your prize.
