Charge nurse working (7)
E - T - - - -

Bird, new, considerably lacking mass (8)

Our team, English, put out (5)

These really have me stumped!
Thanks for any help offered.

Thanks Marnie. I too thought it could be nuthatch, but also couldn't work out how. Though the last T in nuthatch would fit with the last T of entreat (but can't work out how it's entreat either).

I am not sure how I got there Sally.EN is abbrev.for enrolled nurse and a nurse does TREAT a patient.
Think I am maybe shoe-horning an answer in here. I did put a question mark after my answer indicating that I was not certain it was correct.

Thanks TJ
Shoe-horning or no - I'm sure you're right - makes sense to me

aI think \"charge\" is nore likely to be \"entrust\" than £entreat - but I can\'t see how you get it, xcept there are more letters of \"nurse\" used. Are there any general rules for the crossword, because with \"nutthatch\" you\'ve got \"N\" for new, and \"much2 losing mass for considerably, but with \"that\" in the middle. I can\'t see how \"that much\" could work, with no clue as to the placing of the words.

Sorry, I've made a right old mess of the typing, and I promise you I'm sober. Why do those forward slashes appear sometimes?

I can only add more confusion,but here goes.

1. Could the weight one have some relation to TONNEAU (a seat).
2. Could the nurse one be ENTOILS. (apparently an acceptable word in scrabble. It crops up in google but I can't find a meaningful def.
3. The team one. EXILE. It contains E for England and XI for team. It also has EL,,er,um.
