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.

Swanning across the road: Bird gets lost and halts morning traffic on The Mall

A lone swan which wandered on to The Mall caused delays for morning commuters today.

The bird was pictured on the busy central London road outside the Cabinet Office after it blocked cars heading southbound.

It was later rescued and taken back to a nearby park.

The image was posted on an official Transport for London (TfL) Twitter account with the caption: "Supervisor to the rescue, here's the swan from The Mall. Good news is that he's been moved back into the park now."
