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.

Kielder osprey spotted in West Africa for 'first time'

An osprey which fledged from its Northumberland nest has been seen for the "first time ever" in West Africa, the Forestry Commission said.

The bird of prey, which left its nest in Kielder Forest in 2012, was spotted in the skies of the Todde area of Northern Senegal.

It is the first time a Kielder bird has been seen at a migration destination.
