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.

First ever ’state of the birds’ report released in Fiji

Posted at 05:22 on 05 June, 2013 UTC

The author of Fiji’s first-ever State of the Birds Report says some worrying trends have been revealed about the country’s birdlife.

The report was compiled by the NGO Nature Fiji/Mareqeti Viti and Fiji’s Environment Ministry.

It has drawn on the experience of local birdwatchers and ornithologists to provide an overview of the issues facing Fiji’s birds.

The author, Dick Watling, says the report doesn’t go into much depth, but it has revealed a declining bird population and a lack of funding for conservation.
