OK - so it's a rather crude wooden interpretation of a black grouse, made by one of my grandchildren at the Peebles Wood Market - part of the Tweed Valley Forest Festival.
Hopefully I'll make a better attempt at the e-Uke I'm planning to make from a rather nice piece of yew that I bought at the same market. Originally I was planning to use twisted bamboo - but this piece of yew has such a lovely and distinctive grain that I couldn't resist. Rather belatedly I discovered that yew is apparently poisonous...
