Fantastic! I can just see the police trying to catch them now with the footage a bit sped up and a nice bit of Benny Hill music over the top of it. The fact it says stock image on the article made me laugh, as if anyone was looking at that picture of ostriches and thinking it was a genuine pictures of the escapees! 😂

Is it the same place that keeps losing them or is there just a massive glut of ostriches in Lincolnshire for some reason? Losing your ostriches once is bad but continuously losing them? They're basically massive balls with a face on them, they can't be that hard to keep an eye on! 

Its just making me think of the swan in Hot Fuzz now, when they finally capture it and its head is just sticking up between them in the police car while they're in a chase. 😂

In 2017,  a group of us were invited to go behind the scenes at Lincs Wildlife Park Tiger enclosure. Up close these animals are terrifying...but captive!

In all fairness I have a black cat that is the size of a sodding puma but that's more to do with how fat he is than his muscular build. 

Nah, that one in the article is just a fat domestic cat close up rather than a large wild cat far away.

Today I learned that the English English keyboard exists. No, that's not a typo. Before today I had always used an American English keyboard, not knowing about the English English version.

It was only through installing a Windows partition on my machine that I encountered the setup option of Choose Keyboard. Since I had always chosen English English - as opposed to American English for things like spell check - I assumed I had been using English English keys all along.

The only difference I've found thus far is that " and @ are swapped. Having @ right next to the Shift key does seem very convenient but it sacrifices the obvious  move of having ' and " on the same key.
