WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

MUIRHEAD'S MYSTERIES: Pine Martens in Cheshire





Today I present some information on sightings of pine martens in Cheshire between 1992 and 2009 based on spreadsheet data sent to me about 2 weeks ago from Neil Jordan of the Vincent Wildlife Trust. About 1 week ago I went to the Worsley Woods area of Manchester where a pine marten was seen in 1919 to distribute 50 leaflets asking for any records of more recent pine marten sightings but as of today, Monday August 23rd I`ve heard nothing.

As can be seen from the Cheshire data, the zoological orthodoxy that pine martens have not been seen here for about 80-100 years is simply inaccurate.


DEVO SPACE JUNK

She was walking all alone
Down the street in the alley
Her name was Sally
She never saw it
When she was hit by space junk
In New York Miami beach
Heavy metal fell in Cuba
Angola Saudi Arabia
On xmas eve said norad
A Soviet sputnik hit Africa

On this day in 1888 Mary Ann Nichols, thought by most Ripperologists to have been the first victim of Jack the Ripper, was found murdered.
And now, the news:

NEARLY KILLED BY MYSTERY SPIDER
Second sighting for monkey (Via Dave Curtis)
Drunk baboons plague Cape Town's exclusive suburbs...
I caught a piranha ...in the Thames
