Seems to have constant updating.
When I looked first, under a "Chemical Incident" in Spain, was report of an "explosion" of voles in the heart of their prime cornlands.
Seems a warm winter hasn't reduced the numbers of these criturs this winter.

That incident has now disappeared from the list.

Very interesting link, into favourites for a daily check.

apparently lack of eagles & vultures to blame - and the storks only eat three or four before they're fed up on them ( couldnt eat a vole one )

In my favourites too ;)

I use a different one for the same info which is by subscription. That and Janes Publishing & Llodys Registery for other disasters!

Yes, lack of predators plus the normal winter death of most has not occurred this year.

I mentioned it because describing the situation under 'chemical incident' seemed quaint.
In the time it took to add my post with link the incident disappeared.

This morning on my way to work I was passed by a van emblazoned with "Tango Emergency Delivery"

How could anyone consider a shortage of Tango as an Emergency?

Eleven children from native communities in the Northern Peruvian Amazon Jungle died because of rabies, after they were bitten by vampire bats. Attacks by vampire bats led some villagers to leave their homes in Condorcanqui Province, near the Ecuadorian border. However, Peruvian authorities assured them that the outbreak is under control. "Of course, people get frightened. They are temporarily leaving their homes, and they are getting into the jungle," said the Vice-President of the Inter-Ethnic Jungle Development Association, Mr. Shapiom Noningo. Dr. Luis Suarez, Head of the General Epidemiology Office in the Peruvian Ministry of Health, declared to Reuters that 2 outbreaks occurred in different places, one between last September and November [2006], in which 3 children died, and another one last November [2006], in which 8 children died. "All of them were less than 6 years old," Dr. Suarez stated.

The total number of persons bitten is 1101 -- the last one was bitten last December [2006] --
