To PT or not to PT; Mailbag letters also appear online at www.examiner.co.uk/letters Mailbag.

MY wife was totally convinced that there were no words that started with the Letters PT, so much so she checked her answers several times on the Examiner's cross code she was doing on July 23. She finally gave in and asked me. There are in fact about 60 words which start with the letters PT, not very many in regular daily use I must say.

The Rock Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta) is known simply as Ptarmigan in Europe and colloquially as snow chicken or partridge in North America, where it is the official bird for the territory The ptarmigan is a plump game bird, slightly larger than a grey partridge.

In summer it is a mixture of grey, brown and black with white bellies and wings.

In winter it becomes totally white except for its tail and eye-patch which remain black.

In the UK it breeds in the highest mountains in the west of the Highlands of Scotland. I am sure many of your readers will have the same doubts.
