My money (if I had any left) would be on: Mara.

Looks like it is a Mara.

Shame the answer was not wallaby, as I was going to say a pint of Boddington if they have it.

Cool spot anyway, a very cute beast.

Spot on!! I knew someone on here would work this out. Thanks very much for the help. I will sleep far more soundly tonight.
