Dorwinion for D? Not sure about the wandering bit, though. Unless the wine causes the mind to wander?

EDIT: The location of Dorwinion wandered over time. Tolkien once located it somewhere on Tol Eressea.

Is the W one WIZARD? Maybe it's 2 letters of separation from 'ward' for 'keep' rather that from the zoological genera I was looking through.

They're generally wandering, if they're doing their jobs properly.

Is R RANGERS - perhaps referring to a game of some sort? I believe there's a game called Space Rangers.
