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.

Unconfirmed reports of sightings of a Golden eagle in Devon

Search for golden eagle in Devon

September 2013. There have been several reported sightings of a very large raptor, believed to be a Golden eagle, in North Devon in the last month or two. A pet bird from Escot Park did go missing for a week in July, but returned to Escot.

Police Sergeant Dave Knight, a Police Wildlife Crime Officer based in North Devon, is requesting sightings of a Golden Eagle that may be in the North Devon area. If you see this magnificent bird, or if anyone has seen the bird since the beginning of August can they please contact Devon and Cornwall police on 101 giving the exact location and date of sighting.
