Pterodactyls recently observed in UK

Nov 24, 2019 There are many places on our planet where dinosaurs would still roam while avoiding contact with civilization. In modern times, these survivors confuse as much as they frighten.

While it may seem logical to find unexplored wild expanses of Africa or South America in the confines of the United Kingdom, the United Kingdom is one of the places where witnesses have occasionally seen living dinosaurs.

Jonathan Whitcomb is a creationist and the majority of "pterodactyl" encounters he reports have no evidence to corroborate them. There's a good chance that he invented most of them.

In that case wouldn't he say they were demonic in origin?

Maybe one of these?

No, he thinks that they are living animals and not demons. Herons could explain a lot of the sightings since their feathers can resemble the head crest of Pteranodon, which is what most of the public think of as a "pterodactyl".

Where are all the game cameras showing these beings?  Where are the multiple photographs and confirmed sightings?

Birdwatchers have gotten lots of photos of very rare birds in England (populations of a few thousand birds)... so where's the pterodactyls?  And more importantly, where are the historical accounts of them?

In order to survive for 60 million years -- and unchanged, like turtles -- there would be lots of fossils that show up after the decline of the non-avian dinosaurs.  There's lots of bird evidence through the ages, therefore there should be pterodactyl evidence.

Still trying to get beyond this part.

Nearly 8 billion of us, basically nowhere on land left unexplored. Where would these "many" places be...the deep oceans...Antarctica maybe?

There are no dinosaurs in the UK. The end. 

Oh... umm.. with the possible exception of Jeremy Corbyn, that is.

Maybe they're portal hopping with bigfoot. I mean...to me...that's the most logical and likely explanation.

Well he is obsessed with the subject of living pterosaurs as he's published numerous books and websites related to it. He's mainly motivated by his creationism because he thinks this would somehow disprove evolution.

Jonathan Whitcomb is the world's leading author of nonfiction books and web pages on living pterosaurs.

Wouldn’t the UK be a little cold for a Pterodactyl?

If you think about the the world through history, species have appeared, dominated and most of the time been replaced when something else better adapted to current conditions comes along.   

It is not just humans, every where you go on this planet, dinosaurs would face competition from other successful animals.  Apparently birds were the more successful reptiles at adapting than pterosaurs.

His books are more fiction than nonfiction.

Here is an interesting fact about pterosaurs:  They are extinct.  This seems to be the most pertinent fact.

The Quetzalcoatlus could very well have glided around the globe for months on end between landings.

Well from what I know Pterosaurs were probably warm blooded, so....maybe not?

I mean the bigger problem is that they have been extinct for 65 million years.
I read this book on Antarctic Dinosaurs once. The continent was warmer back then, but apparently not by all that much (still snow and stuff) and was getting colder as it was drifting towards it's modern positions, and the warm blooded dinosaurs there managed. Not sure whether there were any pterosaurs living there, though.

We get occasional storks and cranes in the UK which would be a surprise to some, as they have very large wing spans...
