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.

Bird lovers in Street and Glastonbury urged to help out wildlife as weather worsens

Conservationists have urged West Country wildlife lovers to fully stock their feeders to help birds through the winter.

With temperatures dipping below zero at night and in single figures during the day, the RSPB has encouraged people to provide high energy foods and water to aid resident populations.

Tony Whitehead, from the RSPB in the South West, said: "The drop in temperatures across the UK will have been a big shock to birds' systems after spending the past couple of months with few worries in terms of food availability. Up to now natural food sources have been readily available and water has been easy to come by. Now, as temperatures are falling, birds will need all the help they can get to survive the winter."
