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.

Video: Storm blows Canadian bird 3,000 miles on to Tyrone lough

by MICHAEL MCGLADE

Recent storms are believed to have blown a bird over 3,000 miles from Canada to a lough in Co Tyrone.

The solitary Pacific Diver bird - known as a loon - which was spotted on Lough Fea near Cookstown in recent days has attracted dozens of bird watchers from as far as Scotland.

Several images of the bird - which spends much of its time diving under water for small fish - have been captured by delighted bird watchers.

More bird watchers are expected to descend on the lough this weekend, as news of bird’s bizarre appearance spreads.
