Giant Papuan Rat

No bird news to report today, but who am I to ignore the news that a team from the BBC’s natural history unit have discovered the Biggest Rat in the World. Ever! in Papua New Guinea. It’s about 3 foot long. Which is freaky. I bet it hunts cats.

Read all about it on the BBC. Or the ever-entertaining Daily Mash.

not a rat, yesterday

  1. I’d batten down the hatches, looks like you have a proper hoully heading your way this evening!

  2. Yep, it’s looking like a right snorty night ahead! I cleared up all loose things that might blow around (fence posts, pallets etc) last night, and will do another check this evening. Equinox storms… you gotta love ’em.

  3. Jon – its so windy here right now I think your Maywick chickens are now scratching around the streets of Bergen…

  4. If there’s any left they’re the rarest things you’re likely to be seeing for the foreseeable! Rotten south-westerlies…

    Fingers firmly crossed for an American warbler of some sort.
