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.

Rare bird eggs taken from beach

Eggs have been taken from a critically endangered shorebird's nest on the South Coast.

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has expressed concern after the eggs were removed from a critically endangered shorebird nest on Inyadda Beach earlier this month.

Hooded Plovers and other endangered shorebirds are attempting to breed all along the NSW coast at present. The eggs were taken from Inyadda Beach, between Sussex Inlet and Mollymook.
