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.

Fears for swans after diesel spill in city park

ANIMAL welfare officers have expressed their fears for the health of a bevy of swans after a diesel spill in a Dublin park.

An investigation was launched after a pipe carrying the fuel burst close to Stardust Memorial Park in Coolock.

Six birds are feared to have swallowed a quantity of diesel.

The Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals today confirmed that its officials removed three of the swans from the infected pond.

They will be cared for in a DSPCA centre for six weeks before being returned to their natural habitat.
