the moons are at least 50 meters in diameter

I'm sorry, my mental image of what a moon should be does imply something a little bit larger than that. Given that the term 'planet' now has certain size restrictions, could we also have size restrictions on moons? Like, at least an order of magnitude larger than the ISS?

(Yes, I know that 'at least 50 meters' could include stuff a lot larger, but in this case, the primary is only 700m in diameter, and the satellites are unlikely to be over 100m diameter.)

A piranha has been found in a Devon river, and a marmoset wandered into a house in Bedfordshire.

It's not even a particularly hot summer.
