This creepy looking bird with insect arms hopped out of the ground but who is it? First I thought maybe Jiminy Cricket but I don't think so. Made of lead, 35mm tall. There is a seemingly purposeful hole in the top of it's hat. Any ideas?

Amazing what we find and the knowledge others have to ID such item.
Just looked at the other figures in the range, particularly like , Monty the Monkey.
Well found, :thumbsup:

Well done to the great research of Mr Pheasant by finding Mr Gussie Robin :D
Looks like he`s had a tipple or two, because he`s looking rather Legless and a bit worse for wear.
