Saturday's Peninsula Breakfast Briefing
By Derek Davis
3rd Dec 2022 | Local News
Here is a fact to drop in the pub or classroom with your mates: The largest egg in the measures more than a foot in length, and scrambled one would be the same as 100 chicken eggs. Its mother, an Elephant Bird, towered 10 feet high and the species that lived on Madagascar is thought to have become extinct some time between 1200 and 1700.
Cloudy with some brighter spells, mixed with isolated showers, especially from the north of the region. Cold with strengthening winds adding to the wind chill. Maximum Temperature 6C.
Joke of the day:
Where does the Batman go to pee?
Did you groan? (send us your own favourite joke).
