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.

Elite club in Hefei feeding rare birds to government officials

An elite dining club in Hefei, Anhui province, is allegedly serving peacock and wild goose, both protected by the state, to government officials, according to the Xin'an Evening News.

A reporter from the Evening News visited the club, which is not signposted and "only serves officials and businessmen" according to a waiter. The reporter found braised peacock and wild goose on the menu, at 1,680 yuan and 358 yuan respectively.

In October, a CCTV report exposed eight restaurants and hotels in Jiangxi which were serving endangered rhesus monkeys to diners.
