Bird in brass -- a lot manufactured (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

albatross

'bird' is the definition.
(albatross is a kind of bird)

'brass a lot manufactured' is the wordplay.
'manufactured' is an anagram indicator.
'brass'+'a'+'lot'='brassalot'
'brassalot' anagrammed gives 'ALBATROSS'.

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for albatross that I've seen before include "Oceanic bird - golf score" , "golfing term" , "that golfer with a hole in one might register?" , "Excellent golf score" , "Golf course achievement > accounting for handicap" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
