    Mystery Of Ghostly Black-Eyed Child Sightings On Cannock Chase
    Huffington Post UK | By Sara C Nelson

    A paranormal investigator is appealing for witnesses after a resurgence of sightings of an eerie entity known as the “black-eyed child”.

    Lee Brickley is scouring the Staffordshire beauty spot of Cannock Chase after receiving claims the girl, “who has coal-black pits for eye sockets” is making appearances again some 30 years after she was first spotted....


    Ok, here's a question. How did they get the black-eyed child to pose for this picture?

    Nobody has offered a serious answer to how they got the little girl to stand still.

    Black eyed girl selfie ^^^^

    The reappearance last year of a ghoulish apparition at Cannock Chase in England has led to considerable media frenzy in the UK and an allegedly “in-depth investigation” by paranormal investigator Lee Brickley.

    Last summer, Lee wrote of his receiving an email regarding a sighting of the ghost of a black-eyed child. According to Lee, this ghoulish spectre was first seen in Staffordshire in the 1980s. The sighting created worldwide interest in “the black-eyed girl,” which eventually led to the ghost becoming an Internet sensation....

    I noticed that one black-eyed girl has black eyes and orbits, one has only black orbits and another has only black eyes with normal orbits. They seem to like having their picture taken. If they can't find someone else to take their picture, they take a selfie. It all sounds very reasonable to me. :giggle:

    I've never been able to see anything wrong with the ghostly emu either. Its eyes look perfectly okay to me.

    It is, isn't it.

    I (seriously) go see two emus about once a month. So know exactly what they look like, up close. Which is nothing like that ostrich in the photo. I still thought it was an emu though. Time to get my glasses prescription checked out.

    Think that photo's about 1910, so that would make it a 100-year-old ostrich masquerading as an emu.

    If it's still alive, I'll start believing in black-eyed ghosts. :)

    Locals and I set up a widlife cam to try and catch someone who has been stealing from gardens and yards. Unfortunately, some dang fool (blush) set it up in a tree where the movement caused it to take over a thousand photos.

    Sunday was spent going through endless, boring snaps of nothing - then suddenly, a ghostly white shape appeared in front of the camera, seeming to float. Was it a flash of light? No. Something thrown at the camera? No.

    Didn't help that at night, black's reversed to white. This thing was dark and looming. A little group of us began to get really really spooked. Then an older gentleman joined our group, took one look, chuckled, and left. Came back with a bird book. Matched the shape exactly. Camera was disguised as a birdhouse and the little fellow had accepted the invitation, then was upset when he couldn't get in.
