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.

Owl attack terror in Inverness - via Lindsay Selby

A MAN was rushed to Raigmore Hospital after he was left bleeding from the back of his head following a bizarre attack involving an owl.

The incident took place in a built up area of Inverness near to the city centre.

John Mackay (58) was taken by surprise when he claims the large bird of prey, believed to be an Eagle Owl, knocked him to the ground and attacked the back of his head on Saturday evening.

The incident happened just outside the Masonic Club on Gordon Terrace in Inverness at around 9.15pm.
