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.

New President for BirdLife Malta

BirdLife Malta has appointed a new President and Vice President following the retirement of long-standing President Joseph Mangion.

After twelve years in the Presidential role, Joseph Mangion has voluntarily stepped down from his leadership responsibilities in the organisation.

BirdLife Malta has now appointed Geoffrey Saliba as President and Saviour Balzan as vice-president.

Mangion took the helm at BirdLife Malta at the time of the EU accession negotiations in December 2001 and ensured BirdLife Malta grew from strength to strength to remain one of the most respected environmental NGOs on the Maltese islands particularly through its presence in the media and as a respected stakeholder.
