    I know this is not seabird flavour but try this one Bill. You can sing it if you like.

    I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's son
    I'm only plucking pheasants 'till the pheasant plucker comes.

    Me husband is a keeper, he's a very busy man
    I try to understand him and I help him all I can,
    But sometimes in an evening I feel a trifle dim
    All alone, I'm plucking pheasants, when I'd rather pluck with him.

    I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's mate
    I'm only plucking pheasants 'cos the pheasant plucker's late !

    I'm not good at plucking pheasants, at pheasant plucking I get stuck
    Though some pheasants find it pleasant I'd rather pluck a duck.
    Oh plucking geese is gorgeous, I can pluck a goose with ease
    But pheasant plucking's torture because they haven't any grease.

    I'm not a pheasant plucker, he has gone out on the tiles
    He only plucked one pheasant and I'm sitting here with piles !

    You have to pluck them fresh, if it’s fresh they’re not unpleasant,
    I knew a man in Dunstable who could pluck a frozen pheasant.
    They say the village constable had pheasant plucking sessions
    With the vicar on a Sunday ‘tween the first and second lessons.

    I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's mum
    I'm only plucking pheasants 'till the pheasant plucker's come.

    My good friend Godfrey is most adept, he's really got the knack
    He likes to have a pheasant plucked before he hits the sack.
    I like to give a helping hand, I gather up the feathers,
    It's really all our pheasant plucking keeps us pair together.

    I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's friend
    I'm only plucking pheasants as a means unto an end !

    My husband's in the forest always banging with his gun
    If he could hear me half the time I'm sure that he would run,
    For there's fluff in all my crannies, there's feathers up my nose
    And I'm itching in the kitchen from my head down to my toes.

    I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's wife
    And when we pluck together it's a pheasant plucking life !
    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Flying Cloud was a clipper ship that set the world's sailing record for the fastest passage between New York and San Francisco, 89 days 8 hours. The ship held this record for over 130 years, from 1854 to 1989.

This was the third volume of The Narrative of the Voyages of H.M. Ships Adventure and Beagle, the other volumes of which were written or edited by the commanders of the ships. Journal and Remarks covers Darwin's part in the second survey expedition of the ship HMS Beagle.

    Revenant was a 20-gun privateer corvette, launched in 1807, and designed by Robert Surcouf for commerce raiding. The French Navy later requisitioned her and renamed her Iéna, after Napoleon's then-recent victory at the Battle of Jena–Auerstedt.
