85 wd Text:  this would easily accommodate 85 words of " TRACKS " text at 4/5 words per line. If it is essential to have a wider block of text then the drawing could be bled off 1" in from R border (to middle gull's tail) but preferred as it stands if possible.

NB Short of adding numbers or arrows (which we'd prefer to avoid!) this "lined-up" sequence is, I think, the best way of reinforcing the involvement of the same chick.
