This is excellent news: good mate Neil Arnold has just set up four new blogs devoted to big-cat research in Britain. As you'll see from the links below, Neil's new blogs are focused on big-cat activity, reports, sightings and breaking-news from the English counties of Surrey, Sussex and Kent - as well as in the general southeast part of the country.
If you've read Neil's book The Mystery Animals of the British Isles: Kent, you'll know how deeply he has dug into the big-cat controversy in his home-county of Kent; and doubtless we'll see equally good material at the blogs. Be sure to regularly check them out!
