Flippin' heck! Made the cats jump when I shrieked! Looks almost like a newly hatched bird except for the feeler.
Imagine that the size of a cow. That would certainly have you wetting your keks!

Looks like a mutant chicken to me.
Reminded us of the creatures in Quatermass and the pit. It is very bird like in many ways. You certainly wouldn't want it cow sized looking over the fence at you. It would scare the bejesus out of intruders though
Absolutely incredible! I think it's the eyes that are most surprising.
What is going on here? It looks like they a germinating while still on the teasel maybe?
According to OH, that's what it is, the seeds germinating on the plants and the scientific name for this is vivipary. One of the weird facts she has learn't that has stuck in the grey matter
Yeah, I've just been reading around - a sign of it being very wet apparently. Also I must keep an eye out for how goldfinch tackle them (as a favourite.) Its not like they have long beaks for the precarious job.
