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.

Shock after Perth thugs kill cygnet

THE RSPCA is seeking information about alleged animal cruelty at a popular Perth park after residents reported a cygnet had been bashed to death by thugs.

The cygnet and its sibling had been delighting visitors to Claisebrook Lake in East Perth for weeks.

But in the early hours of January 27, the young black swan's life was snuffed out.

Photographer Keith Lightbody, who has long been capturing images of the lake's bird life, said residents, workers and council staff were extremely upset by the news.

"Those cygnets were gorgeous," he said.
