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.

Rescued Greater Adjutant Stork released in the wild

A Greater Adjutant Stork, rescued and rehabilitated by locals and conservationists, was today released in the wild here. 

The stork, named 'Arshiya' by her rescuers, was released at Boragaon by the Assam State Zoo Divisional Forest Officer Chandan Bora at an initiative of 'Aaranyak', a conservation organisation, in cooperation with the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) and College of Veterinary Science, Khanapara. 

"We are very proud to be a part of the bird's rehabilitation and Assam State Zoo team is committed for such endeavour in future," Bora said after releasing the bird. 

Boragaon is a popular feeding habitat of this stork.
