Wow! That was a truly inspirational deduction Chris!
Maybe you just need to polish up your magnifying glass little more...;-)

Hi Quester,
I am not sure if she is a he, or he a she...
As we are quite close to a solution might I ask what material you think he/she is made of? Then I will post a slightly larger crop which SHOULD reveal all... :D

OK Andy,

I'll have a go - I think it is some sort of drain head or trough.....cooler or warmer?

Hi Richard,
I can tell you that it is not made of metal...not sure if that helps though! :?

A botched attempt to make a pizza? Is it dough?

Sadly no, and no...
Chris was moving you in a warmer direction, so although baking pots and pizzas can be hot work, I feel the chill of the next snow shower heading in your direction! ;)

There's a hint. Part of the bucket of a snow plough?
