Giant Birds 4: The Divers

Further evidence of the giantism in British birds that Nige and I have so brilliantly observed and analysed. When will the mainstream media wake up to this disturbing phenomenon?


  1. I draw your attention to this from the original report:

    But critics have another take: human error.

    "Was it really as big as he thought it was?" asks Ben Radford, editor of "Skeptical Inquirer" magazine. "When there's enough information to come to a determination, I've always found an explanation for it."

    Radford says the eye can be deceived.

    "Eyewitness testimony is very unreliable. And so it's hard for a person to tell — even experts to tell — 'Is that thing I'm seeing out there, is it small and nearby? Or is it huge and farther away?' " Radford said.

  2. Ha! They laughed at Newton - well, I don't think they did but you know what I mean.

  3. I love that 'Rise in divers' - maybe they're all barreling up to the surface from secret underwater silos. Fine birds, though, with that primordial look and shape - like cormorants, only pretty (and smaller). I believe they are among the oldest extant bird species.

  4. Do you allude here to Newton's interest in alchemy and the prophetic books of the Bible - or the slightly sounder laws of motion?

    Or have I missed something about his interest in er... enlarged birds...
