Hi Nic, that’s absolutely wonderful!
I have no talent at all for drawing unfortunately, absolutely useless. I bet I couldn’t even draw your template! I have painted ornaments, had to stop that as the house was full of them! Anyway, now I’m wondering if it could be done in some way from photographs, not too sure, but may try that. I’ve noticed different colours of the spines and mostly the size of them on cctv has told me which one it is, plus some damaged spines picks out one male. As I’ve said before, to mark them in any way is awful and failing to identify one would be no problem really as we are privileged to have them. Best wishes.
