Just playing around with wire legs and seeing what happened. Broke two needles in quick succession even though the wiring is minimal. Started with an egg shape on legs then added the flowing tail, just felted the top part of the wool and left the lower fibres trailing so he's rather inclined to moult! Wings added in the same way, the pattern was an after thought to give the impression of feathers. Nice bendy neck, no wire there, and lovely bulging eyes.
