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...

DO ANY BLOGGO READERS LIVE IN READING?

Can anyone do us a favour? Can anyone take a couple of pictures of John Rabson's Recreation Ground, for us? We cannot find one anywhere....

SURPRISING NUMBER OF MOTHS AT THE BEGINNING OF WINTER

Each day I read the latest sightings at the Dorset Moth Group and I am really surprised at the level of moth activity reported even at the beginning of winter. For example:

21st November 2011
At East Lulworth 17 Rusty-dot Pearl, a Palpita vitrealis, December Moth, two Red-green Carpet, four Spruce Carpet, 17 November Moth agg., 13 Feathered Thorn, a Scarce Umber, six Mottled Umber, a Satellite, a Red-line Quaker and seven Yellow-line Quaker (L Hill).

20th November 2011
By day at Chickerell, a Hummingbird Hawk-moth feeding on various garden flowers at noon (C Pinder).

Immigrants at Portland were nine Rusty-dot Pearl, a Rush Veneer and a Gem (per PBO website). A Dark Sword-grass the only moth of note at Broadwey (P Harris). Another quite mild night (with a bit of rain) at Tincleton, with 49 moths of 12 species; of interest were a Diamond-back, Rusty-dot Pearl, 17 Feathered Thorn, a late fresh Large Yellow Underwing, and 15 Chestnut (R Cottle). Two 6W Actinic run at Waddock Cross overnight, produced a Spruce Carpet, eight November Moth agg., 24 Feathered Thorn, five Scarce Umber, 11 Mottled Umber, a Satellite and two Chestnut (V Giavarini). To light at Winterborne Stickland were singles of Rusty-dot Pearl, December Moth and Dark Chestnut (L de Whalley).

On this day in 1887 William Pratt, better known by his stage name Boris Karloff, was born. Karloff starred in many Hollywood productions as a monster, but it is for his role as Frankenstein’s monster that he is best known and his interpretation of the character has become more famous than the monster’s character in the novel itself.
