Dear Mr Oddie,
I understand you may have received a few letters recently concerning possible sightings of a Dodo.
Obviously not being Ornithologists, it is clear these people are mistaken: we both know that the Dodo is extinct. The bird they saw eating my bacon sandwich was quite likely to be a Wood Pigeon, since we have many waddling around our garden.
I understand their error may be a linguistic one, rather than one of mistaken identity: it's not such a far stretch from Dodo to Dildo, and it was more than likely that it was one of these they spotted in the garden, rather than any long-extinct bird.
Just wanted to clear up any misunderstandings that may have arisen from any recent communications. And to say, keep up the good work - fabulous programme!
