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.

Dartford pigeon found with wings glued together in 'wicked' act of cruelty

1:39pm Wednesday 13th November 2013 in News By Tim MacFarlan, Bexley and north Kent reporter 

The pigeon was found covered in bits of paper and cardboard.

A PIGEON has been found wandering around Dartford town centre with its wings apparently glued together in a "wicked" act of cruelty.

A group of schoolchildren spotted the sticky bird at just before 9am this morning outside recruitment agency Premier Work Support in the High Street.

The youngsters asked employees there for help and they managed to catch the clearly distressed pigeon before cleaning it up as best they could and putting it in a box.

An RSPCA inspector arrived to deal with the bird whose feathers could not even be separated so firmly were they stuck together.
