Bird close to old gardening implement (5)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'bird' is the definition.
(drake is a kind of bird)
'close to old gardening implement' is the subsidiary indication.
'close to' indicates one should take the final letters (the \'close\' to the word).
'gardening implement' becomes 'rake' (I've seen this before).
The last letter of 'old' is 'd'.
(Other definitions for drake that I've seen before include "Particular kind of duck", "Duck", "Male duck - circumnavigator", "-'s Drum (Newbolt)", "A male duck", "Raked (anag.)", "Hoe user", "Might he have bowled", "English circumnavigator, d. 1596" and "Sir Francis - -".)
