On this day in 1921 Dick Van Dyke, star of Diagnosis Murder, was born (all right, it’s a very slow day for Fortean or at least mildly interesting things that happened on this day, but hey, there was a ghost in one episode of Diagnosis Murder, so it sort of counts, maybe, perhaps).
Ah, but the Fortean zoology news is a bit more interesting:
