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.

Remarkable Osprey, 'Lady', returns to Scotland for 23rd year - Ospreys update


'Oldest breeding osprey' Lady returns to Loch of the Lowes

Lady has returned to the Dunkeld reserve for 22 consecutive years

An osprey which is thought to be the UK's oldest breeding female has returned to a Scottish nature reserve for the 23rd year.

Lady arrived at Loch of the Lowes in Dunkeld on Saturday from her winter home in West Africa.

She is believed to be about 27 years old and has laid more than 60 eggs in her lifetime.

In previous years, thousands of people have watched her progress on the reserve's webcam.
