Picture quiz: November 2019

LAST month’s picture quiz featured Samuel Johnson’s cat Hodge, who sits outside Johnson’s town house in Gough Square, off Fleet Street.

Our November picture quiz is a little simpler, featuring a pair of animals to be found much closer to home on our Chilterns patch – but where, exactly?
