Travel Scrabble

Janet Frame was a keen scrabble player. I came across her travel scrabble set recently. This particular "solution" seems to have a bird theme.

I noticed an "r" was misplaced - perhaps it fell out in transit and was was just put back in anywheres. Or perhaps the losing party had the "r" in their hand at the end of the game. Or was this a solitaire effort?

I remember many lively scrabble games with Janet as one of the players. She wasn't the only strong player in the family by any means so the games were lively, often raucous, and full of challenges as to the meanings and legitimacy of the various unusual words on offer.
