2. who told the newspapers that the Blue Rock-thrush was the biblical
'sparrow alone upon the house-top', was it the very literary Glen Ingram

in the RSV it is 'a lonely bird upon the housetop'?granted this could
be a Passer, but aren't there other solitary birds that perch on biblical
housetops. Anyone been to Israel recently?
Yes it was me. I think I got it from... somewhere. I am getting old: these
