Question Bill Oddie Medallion

Slightly off topic maybe! Anyone any idea what the medallion Bill Oddie wears on the TV is. Every time I see it it I wonder where I could get one. Thanks in advance to anyone who may know- Alan

Obviously.......
It's an 'ecky thump' bronze medallion.
He came third in the black pudding bashing event at the Cricklewood Olympics...
Bill was badly beaten by Garden and Brooke-Taylor...

Think it's his favourite bird , the barn swallow.Check out your local craft fairs,there are often jewellers who can make just about anything usually in silver.

Yes it is a Swallow, I have just looked at our "Birding with Bill Oddie" book and it can be seen on it.

As for where you can get them I can't help.
