As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

City of London Corporation monitoring parakeet numbers in Wanstead Park following tawny owl deaths

A MOB of exotic birds has staged an invasion of a public park - and appears to be trying to turf out the native population of tawny owls.
The City of London Corporation has confirmed it is monitoring numbers of ring-necked parakeets in Wanstead Park after the brightly-coloured birds turned on a pair of baby owls.
A young tawny owl was found seriously injured at the bottom of a tree by a member of the public earlier in the summer.
A second owlet, perched in the tree above, was being attacked by a group of the parakeets.
