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.

Robin makes nest in golf clubs - Cue crap headlines (Bagman & Robin)

RSPB member gives nature a home in an unexpected place

July 2013. RSPB member Jim Nisbet received a surprise when he looked into his old golf bag to find an enterprising robin had built a snug nest for itself amongst the clubs. After discovering the clever hideaway, Jim left it undisturbed and several weeks later the bag became home to a healthy brood of five robin chicks. 

Jim, from Burnside in South Lanarkshire, said: "Over the last few years a robin has visited the garage and nested, but this year the choice of my spare golf bag was a rather unexpected site. (What would he have done if it hadn't been his spare set? - Terrible dilemma. Ed.)
