anyone point me in the right direction with my last two please?!

47a > Evil nonsense about backward-moving bird (8) N?T?*?I?

and

48d > One first lady upset another old official (5) *?E?E

48d intersects with 47a where the asterisks are!

thanks in advance!

sorry jonny, did you want hints rather than the answers?
The thing you did with the asterisks worked very well. I thought.

trevor - I got the answer "reeve" but cannot totally fit it to the clue. Can you please explain your reasoning. Thanks.

Hi lindsay,
One first lady upset another old official.
re eve
One first lady upset=ER(the Queen backwards) + another 1st lady (adam +)Eve.
A Reeve was some kind of official - in fuedal times, I think.
