At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

As you may have noticed, I have been away for a few days, at the Cambridge Folk Festival with my wife, who wanted to see Joan Baez live.  From today, I shall supplying material to the website again.  However, I shall be away once more from August 13th-17th, attending this year's CFZ Weird Weekend.  My lecture this year deals with the Dobharchu and my experience in searching for it with a television crew.  No, we didn't find it, but the expotition (as Winnie-the-Pooh might have spelled it) was not without its moments of interest.  For readers who will be in England at that time, tickets are still available.  Go to the Centre for Fortean Zoology website at  

For those of you who like folk music I can recommend the first band who were playing at the Festival on Saturday.  They were called Goitse, which is a word in the Irish language meaning, 'Come here'.
