So, this is Giles. He is a young gryphon - you can tell because of all of the downy feathers still on his wings.
His dad was a lion and his mum was an eagle. He had a difficult childhood.
Fluffy! Glue and feathers don't mix at the best of times, it is even more fun if you add wine to the mix
Giles is currently gazing out of my window, yearning to fly off.
