Here we have the 35th episode of the relaunched webTV show by the Centre for Fortean Zoology, written and presented by Jon Downes and Charlotte Phillipson, their families and other animals. And it is a special non-standard episode, but we are living in special, non-standard times!In the new look OTT; we will try to keep the montly episodes to half an hour, but in between the scheduled episodes will be others - OTTXtra. So hold on, its gonna be a bumpy ride. And so far the bumpy ride seems to be a success: viewing figures are noticeably up, and the reactions we are getting seem very positive. This episode contains: • Jon and Charlotte chat remotely • Egrets • A visit to Fremington Quay • A shout out to some remqarkable young ladies • Clearing the ditch at Huddisford • Those we have lost • Dr Max Blake and Richard F and Carl and Dave B-P talk octopusses • Archie takes over • Octopus dissection • Archie and Carl have an argumenrt • How to help us • Changes at OTT • The team says goodbye until next time _________________________________ Links for this episode: Find out more about WWN https://tinyurl.com/rchokh9 Buy the Yearbook (c'mon, please) https://tinyurl.com/vtppmrv _________________________________ Some useful contacts: CFZ Website www.cfz.org.uk CFZ Patreon https://www.patreon.com/CFZ OTT on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/OnTheTrack/ Jon on Twitter @cfzjon CFZ Blog Network https://forteanzoology.blogspot.co.uk/ CFZ Publications http://cfzresources.com/publishing/ CFZtv https://www.youtube.com/user/cfztv CFZ Next Generation Initiative https://www.facebook.com/groups/29796...
