An ostrich which was spotted on the train line between Ipswich and Saxmundham is on the run.

The animal was spotted on the line near Wickham Market at about 11am today and one train was forced to slow down as a result.

A spokeswoman for Greater Anglia said the ostrich moved on of its own accord.

  • An odd business indeed. I wonder if this is the same ostrich I heard had been sighted in Rendlesham Forest recently. Some funny old stuff goes on there, as we all know. However, the ostrich in the picture here looks as if it's in the African bush, not near Wickham Market. Still, they all look the same don't they?

  • My boyfriend and I saw 2 ostriches running through a field at Wickham Market from the train on January 30th. We thought we were going mad! Where have they come from?
