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.

Has Amazon underestimated our feathered friends? Birds filmed attacking drone

Ah, the animal kingdom. Blood, sweat and tears are spilled in the name of territory – and when it comes to airspace it’s no different.

In what could be a bit of an annoyance for the logistics department at Amazon, a radio-controlled pilotless drone filmed itself being attacked by birds.

YouTube user Buddhanz1 uploaded the footage, telling viewers: ‘I must have annoyed a group of birds, they teamed up & started dive bombing my radio controlled phantom drone from all directions.

‘I think they knocked the battery connector loose as I lost control & had a rough landing.’
