The lynx effect

Posted on May 28 2015 at 12:28:54

I think I have just seen a lynx in your village. I have just returned from a stag do (I stopped drinking last night, so I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the alcohol) for which we rented a canal boat and had an absolutely incredible time.

As we were arriving back in Alvechurch at the marina, coming from Birmingham, I saw a big black blob from our canal boat sitting on the treeline about 90 metres away on the right hand side.

I stared at it for a long time trying to figure out what it was and pointed it out to my friend who was also on the front of the canal boat.

Just before we went around a bend, the animal stood up, stretched out and got up against a near tree, scratching it just like a cat does.

It was way too big to be a regular cat and it was absolutely pitch black.

Maybe you know of this animal in the area already?
