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.

It is perhaps very likely that this record relates to a BLACK SKIMMER seen flying south past Annagh Head on the Mullet Peninsular (County Mayo, Ireland) on 10 August
