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.

RSPB asks gardeners to leave natural areas to help wildlife

AS NIGHTS become colder, birds and other wildlife can be seen preparing for winter.
Wildlife charity the RSPB says most of our summer visitors, such as the warblers and swallows, have left to begin their migration south.
Yet their place will soon be taken by winter thrushes from the north that come to eat the berries left in our hedgerows.
Members of the tit family, like the coal tit, start to flock together and other species become quieter and no longer fight over territories and need warm roosts in the evening.
The RSPB is calling on the residents of Hampshire to consider the wildlife that may come to rely on our gardens for food and shelter.
