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.

Dyfi ospreys' £1.4m observatory nearing completion

A two-storey wildlife observatory is nearing completion at the home of one of only two known pairs of breeding ospreys in Wales.

The 360 degree wooden structure is being built at the Cors Dyfi nature reserve near Machynlleth, Powys, with help of nearly £1.4m worth of grants.

The site will open all-year round when work on the observatory finishes instead of its current five months.

Its Dyfi Osprey Project attracted 31,000 visitors this year.

The first osprey chick in the Dyfi valley for 400 years hatched in 2011 and this year two chicks hatched.
