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.

Tagged osprey chick found dead in Spain

AN osprey chick being monitored by the RSPB has died after flying into cables in Spain.

The bird had been expected to fly home to Loch Garten, near Strathspey, in the Highlands, after wintering in the sun.

However, the chick, named Caledonia by local schoolchildren, was found dead in the grounds of a convent in Seville. She flew into cables supporting a lightning rod at the Monasterio de San Clemente during fog and her body was found in the cloisters.
