England birding football XI

Again I am indebted to the Bard of Littlestone who, together with a bit of help from The Bedford Plover, came up with the following football team. It must have been a very slow sea-watch...

Rob Greenshank

Ray Wilson's Petrel
Jackdaw Charlton
Terry Butcher Bird
Ashley Cole Tit

Carlton Palmer Dove
Franklin's Gull Lampard
Bobby Moorehen (captain)

Rodney Marsh Warbler
John Raddesford Warbler
Mick Leach's Petrel

No Man United players considered as they are divers!


Surely, Great Northern Diver played for Manure?

Very good point Andrew, but maybe he plays for Liverpool (Suarez?)
