Picture of Sally OutenSally Outen. Distinctive elongated body and faltering gait. Exhibits red summer plumage; tawny in winter. Found predominantly in and around Pride events, although rarely seen. Seems to share a symbiotic relationship with snails. Known for a strange, rasping call that has been described as both “ludicrous” and “a bit like a dinosaur”. Acerbic when threatened.
