Thanks for the list! It's interesting to look at these.
I will tease my pal mercilessly for having the Great Bustard as his national bird...
Robins are cute and i like their red plumage! plus they get an extra point from me for being easy to recognise (I'm not very good at identifying birds ) But my favourite birds have always been birds of prey - particularly the kestrel, and various sorts of falcon. :)
I like roses, I think that's a cool flower to have as national flower. I also have a weakness for thistles - must be my 1/8 part of Scottish blood!
