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.

Turbine company hire bird expert

A full-time ornithologist is to be employed to monitor winter bird movements around the wind turbine test site at Hunterston.

Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) will employ the naturalist to ensure there are no negative impacts on the environment surrounding the site.

The sand and mudflats at Hunterston are an important wintering area for a variety of shorebirds, and birdwatchers fear many species may be scared away by the ongoing work.
