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.

Malaysia pressed for time in entering bird nest market in China

Laboring under the impact of a 2-year import ban from China, Malaysia's budding bird's nest industry waits for the lift to materialize.

Ma Juicheng, chairman of the bird's nest industry association in Kuala Lumpur, said that after a field investigation by Chinese experts, the government has pledged to allow eight enterprises to export their products to China again. The import licenses have yet to be issued.

Bird's nests are considered a delicacy and are used in a range of Chinese cuisine.
