1830, February 9: Rain Drops Herrings on Island of Ulva

On February 9, 1830, after a clam day with a "steady-even" downpour of rain, the inhabitants of the island of Ulva, in Argyllshire, Scotland, were surprised to find numbers of small herrings, some still alive, had fallen with the rain in an area at least half a mile from the sea shore.


        Just so you know, the above comes from an issue of the Quarterly Journal of Agriculture from 1840, which then claims a newspaper article from 1830 as it's source. I will try to find an earlier reference.
