Brainteaser - Saturday's Answer

Well! Did you get the answer to the Saturday brainteaser? If you did you should be working as a Professor at one of the worlds leading universities. For those of you who didn't the correct answer is set out below:

Baffin Island - from the largest islands in the world, in descending order.
For your information, Baffin Island in the territory of Nunavut is the largest member of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. It is the largest island in Canada and the fifth largest island in the world. It is named after English explorer William Baffin.
Baffin Island has both year-round and summer visitor wildlife. On land, examples of year round wildlife are Barren-ground Caribou, Polar Bear, Arctic Fox, Arctic Hare, Lemming and Arctic Wolf. Ring Seals live off the coast. Summer land visitors all have wings and come to nest on Baffin Island. Species include Canada Goose, Snow Goose and Brant Goose, Sandpipers, Guillemot and Plovers. Three gull types nest on Baffin Island, Glaucous Gull, Herring Gull and Ivory Gull.
So, there you are! You certainly live and learn by keeping in touch with the Blankney Journal! Except when we are tipping horses , that is!
