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...

RED DEER AT WALLAND FARM

Whilst delivering Roy's birthday present on Wednesday, we saw a shy red deer hind coming out of the woods. Here you can see the conservation lake, the deer and the back of Corinna's head in one stunning image....

WHEN A MUMMY BUFF ERMINE LOVES A DADDY BUFF ERMINE VERY MUCH,,,

When I was a boy in Woolsery back in the 1970s, the ermine moths (both this species (Spilosoma luteum) and the more common white ermine (Spilosoma lubricipeda) were amongst my favourite lepidoptera.

I say "more common" under advisement, because these days neither species is particularly widespread.

However, these two, on the wall of the cottage just outside my office door are doing their best to remedy that, and ensure that there will indeed be a new generation next year...
