Thank you very much, Lady Divine.

I'll be giving the answers the same time next week unless someone gets them because I've got to give people the chance to have a go if they wish.

You're welcome, Lady Divine.

The answers for anyone who's interested are as follows:

 1. Magpie
 2. Grey partridge
 3. Mustelid
 4. The process by which holes were drilled in prehistoric men's heads when they had a headache. Medicine men did this because they thought headaches were caused by evil spirits entering the body & they had to let them out. They kept the little bones & put them in little bags that the patient had to carry around their necks to ward off other evil spirits.
 5. Charlotte Bronte
 6. Emily Bronte
 7. Anne Bronte
 8.Horses
 9. The rime of the ancient mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
 10. Grasmere in the Lake District.

 If anyone would like to get their own back on me, please feel free to write another 1. It's just for fun.
