Happy new year to all.
Isabelline is a fairly popular adjective in ornithological circles having been applied to penguins and warblers. My dictionary defines it as "dingy, yellowish grey". I know that this has something to do with Isabel's underwear but I don't know which Isabel and why she wouldn't change her knickers. Can anyone enlighten me? Ta.
